DUI Jail Alternatives – Residential Treatment

There are two different types of treatment programs.  There’s residential treatment and there is sober living houses.  Speak to an DUI lawyer who focuses on multiple offense DUIs to learn which is right for your case.

Sober Living

Sober Living facilities are are residential houses with house rules that allow you to work.  They are the cheaper alternative but not all courts respect sober living facilities enough to appease certain judges and/or DAs.  Speak to a DUI lawyer to see if this type of program will be enough for your case.

To find a sober living facility near you, please see Sober Living Houses
