Every Georgian convicted of DUI, drug possession, underage possession of drugs, or underage possession of alcohol while driving a vehicle is required to complete a Risk Reduction Program approved by the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) to be eligible for possible reinstatement of his or her driver's license. This approved Risk Reduction Program consists of two components. Each component price is set by the Georgia State Legislator. No program can charge more or less. The difference is schedule and quality of instructors. At A Driving Advantage our instructors are well trained and are here to help you create your own risk reduction plan to avoid future problems. Renee Eady owner of A Driving Advantage is a Master Level Instructor - no boring class here.

Clinical Evaluations are a face to face interview and conversation you have with a substance abuse counselor to discuss past substance use and any life circumstances that have increased your risk in the past, current or future risk of substances. They work with you to get a clear overall history as well collaborate with you to create a plan to move forward and reduce future risk. The conversation may result in no referral or could include education or a counseling referral. The referrals will be based on the overall risk assessment, Georgia laws, and your own goals and needs. If it is recommended you seek, further counseling, the evaluator will provide you with an up-to-date list of providers in your area that meet DBHDD and DDS requirements.
