Program Information

In addition to allowing you to fulfill your court-mandated requirement, the intent of the Access Ohio Driver Intervention Program is to help individuals understand the role that alcohol and other mood altering chemical substances play in their life and the issues with driving under the influence. We hope this will help you take the first steps toward building a positive lifestyle and avoid future legal consequences.

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS) require that you complete 72 consecutive hours of driver intervention education. Therefore, if you must leave early before completing our program or arrive late, you will be required to return and complete a new 72 class in it's entirety. You will not be returned your money for the class that you did not complete and you will be responsible for the additional cost of completing another program.

The Access Ohio DIP program will not accept payment at the program. In order for your spot to be reserved payment and registration form must be completed. You will receive an email confirmation once your payment and registration has been received. We operate on first paid first served basis. If we receive your payment and an opening is not available, we will contact you be phone/email.

Cancellation Policy: If you must cancel for any reason, cancellation must be made ten (10) business days prior to the program to avoid a $175.00 rescheduling fee. Permission to reschedule must first be made with the referring court. We must have proper documentation from the court (verbal or memo) granting permission to reschedule.
