Driving With Care: Alcohol, Other Drugs, and Driving Safety Education-Strategies for Responsible Living
The Participant's Workbook, Level 1 Education

December 2004 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Driving With CARE (DWC) is a three-level education and treatment program for persons convicted of driving while impaired (DWI). Clients learn that change in behavior is made by changing their thoughts, attitudes and beliefs. They learn about their own patterns of drug use and abuse and how to make cognitive and behavioral changes so as to prevent recidivism into DWI behavior and prevent future involvement in a pattern of alcohol or other drug (AOD) use that can lead to AOD problems and to impaired driving behavior. Participants take an active part in exercises, work sheets and group discussion.

Lesson 1: Program Orientation: Developing a Working Relationship
Lesson 2: Alcohol and Other Drug Impaired Driving: The Laws and Beyond the Laws
Lesson 3: Changing our Thoughts, Beliefs and our Actions: Learning Self-Control and Driving With Care
Lesson 4: Alcohol and Other Drugs: How do the Facts and Ideas About Alcohol and Other Drug Use Fit You?
Lesson 5: Understanding Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Use and Problem Outcome Patterns: How Do They Fit You?
Lesson 6: Preventing Recidivism and Relapse

"...the authors have incorporated the best principles and tactics from the intervention literature to create a comprehensive, graded program to prevent DWI recidivism and foster lasting bahaviour change.  The DWC program sets a new standard for DWI offender rehabilitation programs."

"Every impaired offender program should take a look at these materials because they will set the standard for a comprehensive, motivational, educational change program that can reduce recidivism and promote meaningful, lasting change for the offenders."
