Habitual/Multiple Offender Relapse Prevention
A curriculum developed by VASAP to educate the Habitual/Multiple Offender population and reduce the incidence of relapse and recidivism. The lack of education, information, and understanding of the relapse process are significant contributing factors for relapse and recidivism. Relapse problems and recidivism can be reduced if the individual approaches continued recovery with knowledge and information about the process of recovery.
A basic driver improvement course available to individuals (1) mandated to attend by DMV as a result of an accumulation of points, (2) referred by a court for a traffic violation, or (3) who volunteer to attend to receive positive points.
Driving Suspended Program
Additionally, while driving, the offender will be required to give a breath sample every 5-20 minutes. If the offender tests positive while driving, the car's horn will sound, and its high beam lights will flash on and off. Any tampering with the interlock system by the offender (Class I misdemeanor) will cause the offender to be sent back to court as non-compliant. The offender can be jailed for this tampering, as well as pay a heavy fine.
