Welcome to Jessamine DUI and Substance Abuse Program in Nicholasville Kentucky. We are located at 202 Edgewood Drive. We are licensed in the state of Kentucky with the Office of Inspector General and the Division of Behavioral Health, Disabilities and Intellectual Development. Licensed to provide education, out-patient and intensive outpatient treatment. I know your time is valuable so I have prepared answers to the most often asked questions. Also, other information you will find useful when choosing a program.
Helpful information when deciding on a program
You will have 10 days after conviction to enroll. Making an appointment is not enrollment. The enrollment is sent to the court by the assessor after your assessment.
What you need to know about getting into a program. You are allowed to go to any program in any county and in any state even after you have your assessment completed. The program just has to be licensed by the state as an Alcohol and Other Drug Entity (AODE) program.
If you are on house arrest, you need to get approval from the court to attend the program. However, you will only be allowed to attend the program and not go anyplace else, not even to get something to eat.
How you get started
Start by calling 859-213-2283 or sending an email to [email protected] to make an appointment and get a return call for an assessment. Assessments are scheduled afternoons and evenings, Monday through Friday. Allow 1 1/2 hours for the assessment.
If you received a dui, you will need an AOC referral from the court of conviction, a citation and date of conviction before coming in for an assessment. If you had more than one dui and haven’t had classes you can do all of them together. However, you will need a referral from the court, a citation and conviction date for each of them.
For a first offense assessment the fee is $75 ($50 for assessment and $25 for the book mandated by the state for class). The balance for the class is $200 for the 20 hour education class. At present, you have to be convicted before attending classes for a first offense. You will need to have faxed or mailed from the court of conviction, the AOC referral form, citation and conviction date to the assessing program. You may also bring it with you to your assessment. The minimum number of classes is 7, 20 hours over 2 1/2 weeks, 3 nights a week for 3 hours. This is the minimum allowed by the state of Kentucky. However, in some instances (depending on your assessment) you may need additional classes.
For a second DUI, text or call for an appointment. Depending on how long it has been since you attended a 20 hour education class, you may have the option of starting in it. You would then move to the out-patient once a week for 11/2 hours. For the second offense, you are allowed to start before conviction and the assessment is $50 and classes are $20 each. You will be re-evaluated at 6 months.
For a third and fourth dui it is 52 weeks of out-patient treatment. However, you are allowed to start before conviction and the assessment is $50 and classes are $20 each.
