After arrest and processing, most people are released without booking on misdemeanors. Some people will go directly to a hospital to get a separate test. This is very expensive. An alternative is to find a service that will come to you to draw and store the blood for later analysis. These services are more difficult to locate but available. Some people go home and jump on the internet and start getting scared and then calling a dozen lawyers until someone answers. The best thing to do is rest, reflect, and then call a very good lawyer, not someone that wants you to hire them by phone. You are vulnerable and too many lawyers will take advantage of that and scare you then promise to get your case dismissed, in order to get your money.
Nobody can promise a result with a 5 minute phone consult. Do your research and call a reputable firm. We try to get people in within 24 hours, even if a weekend. You have all kinds of questions, such as, can I get my car out of impound? Also, if the cop took your license, can you still drive? Am I going to jail? Will I lose my job? Can jail be done at home? Can I still work? Do I have to go to Court? Therefore get in to see us ASAP to get these questions answered. Then you can relax a bit and go back to normal.
If arrested, you have a right to contact an attorney before deciding whether to take the chemical test. We answer 24/7 for this very reason. Upon release you should still be able to drive for 15 days. Consult a lawyer about your particular situation.
As to counseling, many people think that if they get counseling immediately, it will help the case. Not really, but if you feel that you need help, seek it for your own wellbeing. There is plenty of time to determine what type of mandatory counseling, if any, the Court will require.
