Offender Assessment and Chemical Programming

  • The DWI Unit is now using the Adult Substance Use and Driving Survey (Revised) as a part of the chemical assessment for offenders who have been convicted of alcohol and/or other drug-related traffic offenses.  The tool assesses the offender's chemical-education or chemical-therapy needs at the time of the assessment.  A contract assessor, community chemical health service providers, and private assessors conduct the assessments.
  • The DWI Unit is now using the Driving with Care program.  This program is used with offenders who have been convicted of alcohol and/or other drug-related traffic offenses.  The curriculum addresses an offender's needs in the area of chemical education or chemical education and therapy.  Community chemical health service providers and probation conduct the programming.
