All Prime For Life and ADETS participants must enroll at Better Communities. There are only 10 spaces allowed for each ADETS session and it is on a first come, first serve 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 certain legal requirements. Call or email Better Communities for more information.
Often the Prime for Life/ADETS classes sell out quickly. To enroll, contact theBetter Communities 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 a session. The cost for non-NC DWI participants may be slightly higher due to the cost of materials only. The State DWI Services office receives fees from all ADETS and DWI providers to offset some of the cost of the materials for NC DWI clients, but not for non- NC DWI clients. There is never a cost to the taxpayer for any materials provided.
To enroll, be prepared to pay the fees above 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. Enrolling within 6 months and starting classes later still requires a new assessment according to statutes.
Better Communities 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. For more information, visit www.primeforlife.org.
The standard Drug Education provided by Better Communities will consist of five 3 hour groups, completed consecutively. For more information, call (919) 844-7755.
