Three Legged Stool; Understanding community supervision, treatment and technology to reduce DWI recidivism

Research has shown that the marriage of assessment based community supervision, technologies that promote accountability, and the use of evidence based treatment can be an effective countermeasure for high risk drunk drivers. However its full potential is often limited by a lack of understanding of the relationship, parameters and limitations of these three essential components in the challenge of reducing DWI recidivism. This interactive presentation will help participants understand these roles and avoid the pitfalls that impede successful collaboration. Participants will also be guided through the latest research on effective DWI supervision practices, understand how to match appropriate alcohol technology to offender risk, and use assessment tools to match treatment to the specific needs of the client.
