Enrollments are walk-in only, we do not take appointments. You can enroll Monday through Thursday, between 8:00 am and 11:00 am.

When you come to enroll, please bring:

  1.  a copy of your current (within 30 days) 10-year official driving record from the DMV,
  2. a valid form of ID,
  3. the initial payment of $250,
  4. and any court referrals you may have.

Assessments for new enrollments can take one or two hours depending on wait time.

During your assessment, you will be given options for class/group times. We will try to offer nights and weekends to accommodate work schedules, but unfortunately, that is not always possible.

Program Details:

DUI offenders are required to attend a minimum 16-hour educational curriculum. Clients receive an individual assessment at enrollment and treatment services may be required following completion of the education services. Because services received are based on individual needs, the time period for ADSAP varies for each person.

The total fees for the ADSAP program range from $500 to $2,500 depending on the services provided. These services cannot be determined until the assessment process has been completed. The $250 fee paid at enrollment counts toward those fees. Clients are responsible for all fees associated with drug screening.

Additional Notes:

  • If you qualify for a Provisional License or Route Restricted License, you must be enrolled in ADSAP before one can be obtained at the DMV.
  • If you have been convicted of a DUI in South Carolina and are currently living out of state; or if you have an out-of-state license and a DUI conviction in S.C., you will need to call the Interstate Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program housed within the Dorchester Alcohol and Drug Commission at 843-821-5412 extension # 5.
  • If you have a S.C. driver’s license and live in S.C. with a DUI in another state, please bring all out-of-state paperwork with you. We will work with each state to help you comply with the specific requirements they may have. Please keep in mind, some states, like North Carolina, require you to have a N.C. provider work with our agency. You can find local N.C. providers by going to the state DMV website.
