Knowledge alone will not modify behavior A course significantly changes knowledge and attitude using Interactive Journaling,
designed specifically for DUI/DWI offender assessment. The DRI-II was rated "The Best" by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), This test has been standardized on over one million DUI/DWI offenders and incorporates DSM-IV classification criteria along with independent measures of alcohol and drug use (or abuse) severity.
The Defendant Questionnaire (DQ) is designed for defendant misdemeanor or felony assessment in court settings. The DQ is especially useful in substance abuse related cases (to include alcohol and other drugs).
