Following conviction, all offenders receive a mandatory alcohol assessment to determine the nature and extent of their alcohol problems.
The assessment is conducted post-trial but pre-sentencing. The court takes the results of the assessment into consideration in final sentencing or subsequent offenses or serious accient cases.
Assessments are conducted in some courts by a private agency at the direction of the court and are usually paid for by the offender's income.
For first-time aggravated DWI offenders, the court must order the offender to attend a DWI school or other rehabilitative services. The offender will be placed on probation and attend alcohol education or rehabilitation. Occasionally successful completion of programs can result in dismissal of the DWI charge although all DWI convictions are a permanent part of the driving record.
For subsequent offenders (2nd offense and up) there are a variety of required treatment programs statewide which are used by the courts. These programs include drug court in a few jurisdictions, private treatment programs and other state programs both in and outpatient based.
Treatment is not mandatory for repeat and high BAC offenders.
Offenders failing to comply with the terms of their program may not be eligible for license reinstatement and may be returned to the court for further action including mandatory jail time and additional programs.
New Mexico does has treatment facilities that target the hardcore drunk driver, which may be publically funded or private.
