Intoxicated Driving Program (IDP)

The New Jersey Intoxicated Driving Program (IDP) is responsible for the statewide coordination and administration of post conviction interventions that include education, screening, treatment referral and treatment services for persons convicted of alcohol or drug related driving or boating offenses. The IDP office monitors the county and regional Intoxicated Driver Resource Centers (IDRC). IDP coordinates the client’s participation in county level education, screening, and referrals completed at the IDRC. IDP recommends appropriate license action (suspensions and/or restorations) to the Motor Vehicle Commission and manages various other issues regarding documentation, general information and response to public inquiry.

Financially indigent NJ residents meeting certain eligibility requirements may qualify for treatment resources through the Driving Under the Influence Initiative (DUII) fund.


Driving Under the Influence Initiative (DUII)

New Jersey has set aside $7.5 million to support the treatment of financially indigent residents of New Jersey who have been convicted or recently arrested for a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charge. Individuals must be clinically assessed and determined to be in need of substance abuse treatment services and meet financial eligibility requirements in order to access the DUII funding. Financially indigent intoxicated drivers can receive the appropriate level and duration of treatment warranted, thus reducing the incidence of recidivism among intoxicated drivers and ultimately creating safer highways.

To be eligible for this funding initiative, you must be a resident of the State of New Jersey and meet the financial eligibility requirements. If you would like to access substance abuse treatment through this initiative, please contact one of the state's approved DUII Providers.  Should you require further information regarding this initiative, please contact the Intoxicated Driving Program at (609) 815-3100.
