Can You Afford a DUI or Alcohol-Related Arrest?

I know many people spend hundreds of dollars on alcohol in one night. I was at an establishment last weekend and noticed someone’s bill left on the counter.  The total of the alcohol-only bill was more than $135 and the tip was $40.  As a counselor who has treated a myriad of alcohol-abusing clients, I hoped the patron’s date was his DD (designated driver).  If not, he could have faced a DUI arrest from the officer I saw parked in the parking lot.  This made me think of how much is spent on alcohol and then how much is spent on the associated DUI expenses.

DUI arrests are avoidable!

How much are you willing to spend to save thousands of dollars in DUI-related expenses?  How much are you willing to spend to save your driver’s license?  How much are you willing to spend to save your job and income?  How much are you willing to spend to save your life or the life of a loved one?

You can spend less than $50 to save thousands of dollars, your driver’s license, your job and income, and your life or a loved one’s life.  The 6-A Model of Alcohol Abuse in Offenders book and workbook combo is less than $50 and much more valuable.  For those of you who are thinking, “I can’t afford it.”  Think twice!

I have spent years counseling and educating clients who were court-mandated to treatment and alcohol safety education.  If only I had an official tally of the number of clients who said they could not afford a $20, $30 or $50 taxi ride, so they drove after drinking.  The most amazing thing is that they all admitted that a $50 taxi ride was extremely cheap and affordable when compared to the time, money and other losses they had endured after their DUI arrest.  The valuable lessons and treatment I provided to help these clients left them saying, “if only I had all of this information before I was arrested…”

The 6-A Model of Alcohol Abuse in Offenders book ($26.99) and workbook ($21.99) are filled with valuable information that could help anyone from ever experiencing a DUI arrest and help offenders from repeat offenses.  These books can help save you or your loved ones from an extremely expensive agony that could be easily avoided if you had the right information.  Is the information, lessons, resources, and treatment model outlined in books worth it?  Yes!

Maybe some of you have an arrest fund set up to take care of the $2,000, $5,000, $10,000, or maybe even $100,000 in expenses associated with a DUI, alcohol-related or drug-related arrest.  Maybe spending time in jail would be that solo vacation you have wanted to take to get away from your family, friends, job, and life responsibilities. Maybe spending thousands of dollars, losing your driver’s license, and sitting in jail will never happen to you. I must confess and let you know that 98% of my clients thought it would never happen to them.

Let’s weigh the cost of the 6-A Model of Alcohol Abuse in Offenders books against the costs linked to a DUI arrest.

  • Can you afford attorney fees of $300 or more per hour?
  • Can you afford court fines of $400 or more?
  • Can you afford an auto insurance rate increase of $600 or more per year?
  • Can you afford DMV fees of $200 or more and the suspension of your driver’s license?
  • Can you afford an ignition interlock device at $70 or more per month?
  • Can you afford towing and storage expenses of $150 or more?
  • Can you afford the loss of income while you sit in jail?

Even if you have money to burn, do you really want to spend it on these avoidable expenses?
