    ADETS Program Schedules

    Classroom setting

    All Prime For Life and ADETS participants must enroll at First Step. There are only 20 spaces allowed for each ADETS session and it is on a first come, first served basis. Clients who do not have an NC DWI may also take the 16 hour educational Prime For Life program for a variety of needs and to meet any legal requirements. Call First Step Services for more information.

    Often the Prime for Life / ADETS classes sell out quickly. To enroll, contact the First Step facility which you would like to attend and schedule an enrollment session. The cost of Prime for Life / ADETS for NC DWI participants is $160 per session. The cost for non-NC DWI participants may be slightly higher due to the cost of materials only. The State DWI office receives fees from all ADETS and DWI providers to offset some of the cost of the materials for NC DWI (508) clients only. There is never a cost to the taxpayer for any materials or services provided by First Step Services, LLC.

    To enroll, be prepared to pay the fees and bring the recommendation forms from the agency that completed your assessment. According to NC DWI laws, an assessment is only valid for 6 months. Participants must actually begin attending the ADETS classes within 6 months of completing the assessment. Enrolling within 6 months but starting classes later than 6 months still requires a new assessment according to statutes. The State of NC is very strict on the 6 month rule. All completion documents for DMV will be rejected by the State if attendance starts even 1 day after the 6 months.

    First Step Services, LLC utilizes the Prime For Life program as our ADETS programs. It is a verified best-practice model that is required for the State of NC DWI ADETS programs.

    At our Durham facility, Drug and Substance Abuse Education clients may qualify for our Prime For Life program as an alternative to attending the Drug Education School. Also, the standard Drug Education provided by First Step will consist of four 2 1/2 hour groups, scheduled for to be completed in one week. Our 10 hour Drug and Substance Abuse Education program is available for offenders who are required to attend by the courts and for other purposes. For more information, call (919) 419-0229.

    State of NC DWI regulations prevent us from enrolling DWI ADETS clients without a current, valid Lifetime Driving Record and proof of Breathalyzer or Blood Alcohol Content (BAC).  State Law allows no exceptions! Make sure we have your driving record and BAC before enrolling in the class.

    ADETS FEES = $160.00 (NO TAX)
    PRIME FOR LIFE FEES = $185.00 (NO TAX)

    ***ADETS RESERVATIONS MUST BE PAID IN FULL IN ORDER TO RECEIVE A GUARANTEED SEAT. NC LAW REQUIRES ONLY 20 DWI PARTICIPANTS IN AN ADETS/PRIME FOR LIFE CLASS, SO SIGN UP EARLY!

  • What brought me to First Step was drinking and driving and being arrested twice. My first impression was that I wouldn’t learn anything and that I would hate it. What I thought was helpful was listening to others and their stories and how they handled their situations, they helped me reduce the want of alcohol […]
