VicRoads Intensive Drink
and Drug Driving Program

Getting you back on
the road safely

This 10-hour program is for repeat offenders or those with a blood alcohol level of 0.15 and above. It includes group sessions and an individual counseling session. We work with each client to understand their drug/alcohol use and the impact on their driving. We will help you work out what behaviours you need to change and link you to the right treatment and support.   

“We know that behaviour change programs with motivational interviews built-in will be more effective as an intervention than psycho-education or information provision alone”.

We are a leading provider of Drink and Drug Driver Behaviour Change Programs for VicRoads. Our program facilitators are a specialist team that supports adults and youths with alcohol and other drug concerns who have lost their licences. We provide you with a safe, supported learning environment and an opportunity to learn and grow.
