Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Education

One of the most hazardous aspects of substance abuse in our society is apparent every day. Thousands of people are affected each year.

MAAC’s DUI Education Program (DUIP) aims to reduce the driving under the influence of controlled substances, thereby minimizing the negative impact of this behavior on our families, residents and community. Our state-licensed program allows participants to discuss alcohol or drug related concerns in a safe, supportive and confidential environment. Referrals to MAAC DUIP are made by San Diego County Superior Courts, San Diego County Probation Office, or the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Our extensive DUIP offers the requisite individual counseling, group counseling and education services to adults 18 years or older whose driving privileges have been restricted or revoked as a result of driving under the influence. Approximately 1,200 individuals participate in MAAC DUIP on a monthly basis, attending programs between 6 weeks to 18 months in duration. Counseling sessions and classes are available in English and in Spanish, held six days per week with both day and evening options to offer participants flexibility in scheduling with minimal impact on their work and home lives.
