DUI Evaluation Tempe

Driving under the influence (DUI) is a term used by most states, for being legally intoxicated or impaired while operating a motor vehicle.

Each year, states enact stronger DUI laws and more severe drunk driving penalties. You could lose your driver’s license, be placed in jail and fined substantial fees. Your car insurance rates may rise and you could end up with a criminal conviction on your record that could impact your future and your employment opportunities.

If you or someone you know has recently received a DUI and would like to schedule a DUI-Related Substance Abuse Evaluation, contact Stonewall Institute at 602-535-6468.

The more heavily you drink every day, the more likely you will develop alcohol withdrawal symptoms when you stop drinking. Alcohol withdrawal refers to symptoms that may occur when a person who has been drinking too much alcohol every day suddenly stops drinking alcohol.

Alcohol withdrawal usually occurs within 5 – 10 hours of the person’s last drink.  The following is generally considered excessive alcohol use:

  • More than 15 drinks per week for men or 8 drinks per week for women
  • More than 5 drinks per day for men or 4 drinks per day for women
  • Habitual use of alcohol that disrupts a person’s life and routines, regardless of amount consumed

An example of such, is a DUI.  For reinstatement of driving privileges in Tempe, AZ the Arizona Department of Transportation requires an evaluation.  Contact Stonewall Institute at 602-535-6468 to schedule and appointment for a drug evaluation or alcohol evaluation for ADOT Motor Vehicle Division.

Alcohol intoxication is common in modern society, largely because of its widespread availability. More than 8 million Americans are believed to be dependent on alcohol, and up to 15% of the population is considered at risk. In some studies, more than half of all trauma patients are intoxicated with ethanol at the time of arrival to the trauma center. 

Acute intoxication can result in respiratory depression, aspiration, hypotension, and cardiovascular collapse. 

Chronic use of alcohol results in hepatic and gastrointestinal injuries. Coma, stupor, respiratory depression, hypothermia, and death can result from high concentrations of acute alcohol intoxication. Chronic alcoholics are also at risk for hypoglycemia.
