Interlock Enhancement Counseling

DUI Classes use The Change Companies Impaired Driver Education / Therapy Program (IDEP), which is an evidence-based, OBH approved program designed specifically for the State of Colorado.

  • IDEP combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and the Stages of Change Model, created to help people make positive change
  • IDEP is an interactive and dynamic way to explore risks, needs, and skill deficits, as well as strengths, resources, and solutions to problem behaviors
  • IDEP promotes public safety by reducing the harmful effects of substance misuse, especially driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
  • IDEP has been proven to reduce recidivism and substance use, even with repeat offenders
  • IDEP applies leading behavioral-change research, in a way that is accessible, meaningful, and motivational

Interlock Enhancement Counseling (IEC)

  • IEC is a brief voluntary intervention for DUI clients who currently have an interlock on their vehicle
  • Based on evidence-based principles that combine cognitive-behavioral treatment with motivational interviewing/enhancement, IEC consists of ten hours of individual and group counseling over a 5-month period. Specifically, 4 individual sessions (30 minutes each, about once a month) and 4 group sessions (2 hours each, about once a month).
  • IEC is intended to increase clients’ chances of being successful while on and off the interlock
  • A major component of the program is the discussion of the individual’s performance on the interlock and the therapeutic process of changing their drinking and driving behavior while on the interlock and when the device is removed

Benefits of IEC

  • Receiving support around the use of the interlock
  • Experiencing reduced problems while on the interlock as well as when it comes off
  • Reduce the probability of recidivism; a DUI can cost over $10,000
  • It can be taken at the same time as Level II DUI Therapy and can gain 10 hours of credit toward Level II Therapy requirements

What is DUI Level II Education?

Level II Education includes 24 hours of DUI Education over 12 weeks. There is a two hour class once a week.

What is DUI Level II Therapy?

When Level II Therapy is required, it follows Level II Education and can range from 5 to 10 months depending on the track assigned. The track assigned depends on the BAC (or refusal to take a test), any prior impaired driving offenses, and other clinical indicators. Track recommendations are made by the alcohol/ drug evaluator (probation), or a DUI licensed treatment agency in the absence of an evaluation.

Level II Therapy track guidelines for impaired driving offenses that occurred on or after 01/01/2014:

Track A: 42 hours over 21 weeks, usually for a first time offender with a BAC below .15
Track B: 52 hours over 26 weeks, usually for a first time offender with a BAC of .15 or above or refusal
Track C: 68 hours over 34 weeks, usually for someone with a prior DWAI/DUI, and a BAC below .15
Track D: 86 hours over 43 weeks, usually for someone with a prior DWAI/DUI, and a BAC of .15 or above or refusal
