Felony Alcohol Intervention Program
An Experienced Tarrant County Felony DWI Defense Attorney
The Felony Alcohol Intervention Project (FAIP) is part of Tarrant County’s DWI court program. In essence, the program is for defendants who have been convicted of three or more DWIs. It is designed to increase public safety by giving multiple DWI offenders the tools they need to achieve and maintain a sober lifestyle.
This is not a diversion program, which means that successful completion of the program will not help you avoid conviction.
There are enormous benefits nonetheless, including:
- Only four years of probation instead of 10
- Only 10 days in jail, not four to six months
- Lower probation fees
- Expedited access to treatment, which is also offered at a lower cost
- A sober, happier and healthier life
