Samenvatting Many countries or states have been implementing rehabilitation programs for many years for drunk drivers but these interventions vary according to their type or their duration because of absence of standard, evidence-based interventions. We created a program taking into account previous experiences in Switzerland and around the world. Professionals concerned with the problem of alcohol in traffic (a lawyer from the administration authority, a doctor specialized in alcohology, a traffic psychologist, a specialist in adult training) would implement strategies to reduce recidivism among drunk drivers (first offenders). Our own observation of DUI offenders has led us to think that most of them are not alcohol dependent and are crucially lacking in information regarding the effects of alcohol on driving. The first original feature of this program is that it addresses non-dependent drinkers as a priority, even if alcohol-dependent persons are not systematically excluded from the program.
