It is important that persons with a DUI offence receive services that will help them make better decisions. MHA is now licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to provide the Massachusetts Impaired Driver Program, a 38-hour psychoeducational program offered to individuals referred by the Court or Registry of Motor Vehicles.
The program provides an educational experience related to the use of alcohol and other drugs and their effect on driving. The goal is to influence behavioral change, thereby lowering the risk for future DUI and other offenses.
A separate group is offered for individuals under age 21 to address their specific developmental needs.
