The Marin County DUI Program: For Multiple Offenders is an eighteen (18) month Education and Group Counseling program.
The Education curriculum (6 weeks — 12 hours) includes videos, lectures and group discussions with informational materials on DUI law, court requirements, substance abuse and problem drinking.
The Group Counseling component of the program combines 52 hours of weekly group process sessions with individual interviews every other week. Sessions are conducted in a confidential, supportive atmosphere in which participants are encouraged to identify and resolve alcohol-related problems and make positive lifestyle changes.
