After completion of IDCMP requirements, can a LCMHC/MLADC compel you to continue counseling?
I was convicted of a DUI in NH and as part of my IDCMP, 6-8 sessions of after care counseling was required. Both the IDCMP and counsellor's evaluation found 'mild alcohol misuse'. AA, etc. was not recommended. Instead, my counsellor diagnosed me with PTSD. I do not agree with this diagnosis, but, that is not relevant to the context of this question. Instead of 6-8 sessions, I've done nearly more than 20. I, only days before I was supposed to get my license back, convinced the counsellor to submit my completion paperwork to the IDCMP provider. She still wants me to continue treatment, however. I confirmed that the IDCMP provider accepted my completion and that they submitted it to the DMV. Could I just leave my counsellor a polite voice message stating that I appreciate her services, but will no longer be a client? Is there anything she could do to force me to continue? Could she somehow withdraw her completion paperwork at this point? I get the feeling that I'm just a source of income at this point, and its in her interest to drag it out as long as she can. I have a family to support and can't continue this forever. Advice is greatly appreciated...

How can I avoid losing my license?
I am facing a possession in a motor vehicle charge for having marijuana in my car. I was told I was pulled over for speeding and then was told by the officer that he could smell it. He threatened to impound my car or hand it over for a citation. I gave it to him. This unfortunately is my second offense. The first time I did not lose my license because it was a first offense. I work 3 jobs with a variety of house and they depend on me having my license. If I lose my license, I lose everything. Please, how can I negotiate a way to keep my license, even if it's just to drive to work and home. I can't lose my jobs!! Please help!

Can I get my suspension reduced for a DWI in NH?
I had a 3rd DWI in NH and was charged with a DWI 2nd. I am 1 yr into a 3 yr suspension. I attend AA 3-4 times/week, have completed all my State criteria for the suspension and have my Dr, LADC and Counselor willing to testify that I am not considered a risk at this point for repeat behavior.

Signs of impairment when you arent impaired for driving
what if you show signs of impairment when you arent impaired for driving, like act nervous, or make a mistake like driving the wrong side of the road cause you didnt notice any signs or see traffic and you dont know the area. How do I prove I am not impaired, I feel officers have an overactive imagination. For instance if I Was impaired, you think I would have stopped at the stop sign like I Did or lasted that long on the road that day? GEesh.
