The loss of your license that typically follows a DUI conviction can have a long-lasting and devastating impact on your family. Not only is it an embarrassing situation, but it hinders your ability to provide for and care for your loved ones. You may be facing significant fines and penalties in addition to a loss of driving privilege. These effects will likely take a significant toll on your mental and emotional well-being. That being said, it should come as no surprise that depression could be a side effect of a DUI conviction.
