AWARENESS has a pilot ignition interlock program started with the intention of offering teens who wanted to install a free interlock device before they got a DWI. Unfortunately no one ever thinks they will get a DWI so we also offer them immediately after a DWI or DWAI offense, before your court appearance.

I wish it wasn’t me who was writing this blog. I really wish it wasn’t. I wish I wasn’t handpicked because I have one of the “best handles” on this subject.

We need to create change. I have been saddened by the Kelders loss of a son, to find out kids who need help are STILL BEING TURNED AWAY IS UNACCEPTABLE!! I understand that Detox has policies to follow but when those policies turn away a 21 year old addicted to heroin at midnight, who was accepted a week ago, and now to say they aren't showing enough visible signs of withdrawal and to come back at 7am, when beds are available and their insurance will pay is CRAZY!!! The fact they would also be turned away if they have no money is also a problem! We need to do something to change this.
