I have a warrant out arrest as I missed a court deate

Customer Question
i have a warrant out...
i have a warrant out for my arrest as I missed a court deate to appear for a dui charge. No excuses but I did not hear from my lawyer or receive anything to say I was to appear. The date apparenty was 3 months ago. If I turn myself in at the police station can they drop the warrant or should I go to the court in the morning and talk to the duty council? It looks like I have made things worse for myself and I don't know what to do now. I have an axiety issue and I suppose I was burying my head somewhat but didn't realize the date was set. also I am concerned whether I can have my medication in jail?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
