DRINKING DRIVER TREATMENT PROGRAM
One of ten adult Californians and one out of six adolescents is psychologically dependent on, or physically addicted to, one or more mood altering substances. Driving an automobile under-the-influence is probably the single most salient indicator of the magnitude of this problem. Drinking (and using) drivers endanger themselves and others in ways that are visible to all and catastrophic in their consequences. It is clear that any agency or program dealing with DUI client population has a dual agenda with regard to client outcomes. Firstly, all clients, whatever their prognosis as to alcohol/drug dependency, must become both cognitively and emotionally aware that responsible use of alcohol and other drugs absolutely rules out driving a car while under the influence. They must leave the program convinced that there are no exceptions to this rule, no special circumstances, and no safe level of intoxication. Secondly, all clients are guided through an examination of their own reasons for using alcohol and other drugs. Insofar as is humanly possible, clients should arrive at an informed decision about their own actual or possible dependency on psychoactive chemicals, especially alcohol. This direct method works as a sound clinical procedure and is validated by the ADC High Gain Project experience since 1974. And, we believe, allows clients to assume responsibility.
