The DUI Education series is our opportunity to increase the client’s awareness of the relationship between alcohol/drug use and the inherent risks involved, resulting in modified drinking/drug use in high-risk situations such as driving. The classes should provide information on the legal, medical, and social problems associated with the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs.
DUI program clients should receive consistent information within the time frame specified in Title Nine of no less than 1-hour sessions and no more than 2-hour sessions. Each client should receive the same education program/curriculum.
The information given in education should be research-based and have been shown to have statistical validity.
Educators should be trained in the presentation skills needed to deliver the material consistently and creatively in order to engage our clients in their education process.
The education design should assist clients to gain a greater understanding of the effects of alcohol and drug use and abuse, the risks to self and community of driving after consuming alcohol and other drugs; and to introduce clients to the presence and benefit of available treatment and support groups.
