(Webinar) Research Says 2020: Best Practices in Assessment, Supervision and Treatment of High Risk Drunk Drivers
December 10, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
In 2018, there were over 1 million drivers arrested for driving under the influence and drunk drivers were responsible for 10,511 fatalities. Community justice and treatment professionals can face unique challenges in assessing risk levels for these offenders while determining the most appropriate level and type of supervision, technology and treatment needs to minimize the risk of a re-offense and a new victim. This interactive presentation will provide an overview and continuum of the most recent evidence based practices for addressing the issues of high risk drunk drivers from arrest to discharge. This includes the latest research on assessment tools, characteristics of high risk drunk drivers, community supervision strategies, available technologies, the use of Problem Solving Courts, as well as alcohol treatment programming to help criminal justice and treatment professionals maximize their effectiveness while reducing risk to the community.
