What is a Level II Education Program?
This is a 24 hour education program (12 Classes Total) for persons who have been convicted of driving while their blood alcohol level went beyond legal limits or while they were under the influence of a drug other than alcohol. This program focuses on the health as well as legal effects of driving while under the influence of alcohol. Materials used in this program are web based learning and Driving with Care (Alcohol or other Drugs and Driving Safety Education Participant Workbook).   
 
What is a Track A, B, C, or D  Therapy (out-patient treatment) Program
(What's therapy and how is it different from Education)?
Track A.  This is a 24 hour education plus a 42 hours/21 weeks therapy program. A time frame of 66 hours approximately 7-8 months.
Track B.  This is a 24 hour education plus a 52 hours/26 weeks therapy program. A time frame of 76 hours 
approximately 8-9 months.
Track C.  This is a 24 hour education plus a 68 hours/34 weeks therapy program. A time frame of 92 hours

The therapy program may be started only after completion of the 12 driving with care (alcohol and driving safety education sessions) are completed.  Materials used in the therapy hours are web based as well as the Driving With Care Therapy (DWC) book.  DWC Therapy is built on the idea that we make changes in our actions by changing how we think and by changing the attitudes and beliefs that support our thinking.  The goals of this treatment are preventing recidivism and relapse. 



Am I able to attend a class more than once a week?
The Division of Behavioral Health (Formerly Known as (ADAD) Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division) do not allow attendance of treatment exceeding one time per week in the Education and Therapy component.  Education may be completed in intervals of attendance consisting of 3 hours per week (completing in 8 weeks) or in intervals of 2 hours per week (completing in 12 weeks) but Therapy may only be completed in intervals of 2 hours per week.  Any deviation from these rules must be authorized by the probation officer, treatment provider and Division of Behavioral Health Field Supervisor such as in cases that meet the specific criteria for intensive outpatient treatment.  

  
Am I able to attend classes here if my DUI case is from another state?
Yes. Please contact the Edwards Office Location (970)926-8196 to receive the Interstate Compact Instruction and Registration Packet.  Colorado Counseling, Inc. staff are trained to transfer your treatment to this state via the Interstate Compact.
