Voluntary Commitment to Treatment Programs
- Initial Denial
- This program may assist the alcoholic in overcoming initial denial. It is so easy for the alcoholic to risk for himself or herself the dangers inherent in the disease.

- An alcoholic may look more deeply into his or her problem once exposed in a very personal manner to what that drinking can do to others.
- The Risk
- It is one thing to place yourself at risk. It is another to place innocent individuals at risk.
- Some attendees have voluntarily entered into inpatient treatment after attending the DWI Victims Panel.
