Impaired Driver Care Management Program (IDCMP)
This program is designed for those individuals convicted of a DWI (in NH or another state), and required to attend and successfully complete a state approved DWI Program. The IDCMP Program will satisfy all conviction types (first offense, aggravated first offense, Underage DWI, and subsequent convictions). In all cases, clients must have a Successful Completion report from the IDCMP before their driving privileges may be restored.
Per the NH Health Rules, successful completion means:
- On time attendance and participation in the program.
- Payment in full of all required fees.
- Completion of all component requirements (screening, evaluation, classroom education, twice monthly contact calls, and further treatment).
The IDCMP offers a variety of component requirements designed to satisfy a client’s conviction type. These services include:
- Intake Interview.
- Substance Abuse Screening (required for all first time offenders).
- Substance Use Disorder Evaluations (required for all non-aggravated first offender who screen positive during their screen, as well as required for all other conviction types).
- 20 hours of alcohol and other drug education classes (Impaired Driver Education Program). Our agency utilized the PRIME For Life Program developed by Prevention Research Institute. This program has been selected by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration for inclusion in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
- Possible Aftercare treatment recommendations that must be followed before eligibility for license restoration for those individuals who meet the guidelines for further treatment developed by the Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services Health Rules. Aftercare may include any of the following: individual or group counseling with a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC/MLADC) or approved provider, intensive outpatient treatment services, and encouraged attendance at self help recovery group meetings.
- Service Plans with treatment and other requirement recommendations shall be developed for all clients required to complete Aftercare per the NH Health Rules.
This targeted Impaired Driver Education classes (IDEP) are designed to assist clients in gaining a clear and accurate understanding of their personal relationship to alcohol and other drugs. The education focuses on increasing awareness of the negative consequences of abusing alcohol and other drugs.
Southeastern NH Services is also an approved provider for Access to Recovery (ATR) Care Coordination and Treatment Services. This is a federally funded program which is available to assist with some of the clinical costs of the IDCMP. During the Intake Interview our dedicated staff will explain the eligibility requirements of ATR, and assist clients who are interested, so that they may participate in this program.
