How to Take a Drug Awareness Class

Drug awareness classes are for individuals who have committed a drug-related offense, though in some cases individuals who have received a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), or MIP (Minor in Possession) citation may be required to take one as well. In order to comply with court orders, the course that individuals enroll in must be state-certified. A course’s duration will depend on the severity of the case and the court’s requirements, but typically there are course that run 4-26 hours in length (note: prices will vary per course). Depending on the court’s requirements, some classes can also be taken online.

If a specific program has not been recommended by the court, your first step should be finding a class in your area that is state-certified. This will ensure that you are in compliance with the court’s orders. To find a drug awareness class in your area, you can consult the Web. From here, you can find classes that meet the criteria. Most drug awareness classes can be found under the title “addiction treatment center”.
