DASEP FAQs

Before preparing your enrollment form for DASEP, there are several useful things to know and consider:

  • The cost of the class is $150.00 by Money Order Only.  NO REFUNDS.

 

  • All DWI/DUI/MIP offenders in Arkansas must complete either a State approved education program (DASEP) or a state-licensed treatment program.  The presiding judge determines this for each offender.

 

  • Classes (education) conducted by Ouachita Behavioral Health and Wellness can be one of three types:
    • Level 1
    • Level 2
    • Underage

 

  • If a class has been ordered, you should know what type.
    • Level 1 classes and Underage classes are a minimum of 12 hours in length – usually 4 three hour sessions.
    • Level 2 class is 15 hours in length (a current Level 1 class plus a 3 hour Level 2 supplement) making a total of 5 sessions.

 

  • If you have had one or more offenses, State law requires a rehabilitation certificate for each outstanding offense.  A class will clear only “one’ offense.

 

  • All classes require a pre-registration and payment.  Walk-ins (without pre-registration and pre-payment) are not accepted at class.

 

  • You can only enroll in a class after you have been adjudicated.  The judge determines whether you should go to education or treatment.  This information is not known until adjudication.

 

  • No refunds – if you have not completed requirements within 6 months of payment, you must repay.

 

  • You may also be required to attend a MADD Victim Impact Panel.  Call 1-855-227-6233, 501-246-8810, or visit www.armadd.org for more information.

 

  • Information concerning your suspensions, interlock procedures, etc. can be obtained from Arkansas Driver Services at 501-623-1239.

 

  • Faith based programs are often not licensed by the State.  While they might provide good and useful services, completion of these programs (unless state-licensed) cannot be used to obtain a DASEP certificate.

 

  • Ouachita Behavioral Health and Wellness is located at 125 Wellness Way in Hot Springs

 

  • You must be at class on time.  Late-comers will not be admitted.  You must have proper dress, decorum, and be drug and/or alcohol free.
