Driving With Care

Reducing Drinking and Driving

North Central Health Care offers an educational and therapeutic Driving with Care program for people who have had four or more OWI convictions or OWI convictions involving serious accident or injury. Our objectives are to reduce the frequency of drinking and driving, and to assist individuals break their chemical dependence.

Driving with Care consists of 33 group sessions held twice a week over four months. Each two-hour group meeting is facilitated by two AODA counselors who help teach clients to examine and confront their own patterns of thinking and drinking.  

Once an individual has completed Driving with Care, it is expected they will continue individual counseling for an additional five to eight months to ensure what they have learned is applied to daily living.

Referral only from Probation and Parole.
