Riverside’s Driver Alcohol Education program is for individuals on probation for their first offence of driving under the influence. This is a 16 week course mandated by the courts to satisfy a specific probation requirement.
Our Driver Alcohol Education program is committed to providing a comprehensive course which addresses both the physical and psychological issues of driving under the influence. As individuals progress through the program, many find themselves seeking additional support for mental health or addiction related issues. When applicable, referrals for individual outpatient therapy or higher levels of care are available.
We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"My therapist listens to me, validates how I feel and then challenges me to see new viewpoints or to take new steps toward my wellness goals. She reminds me that I am not my illness but a person, who deserves a life outside the illness."
