The Weekend Intervention Program

The Weekend Intervention Program (WIP) for impaired drivers is a component of an interdisciplinary effort linking the area's courts and substance abuse treatment agencies.

The WIP program was developed at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine in 1978 and has been in continuous operation since that time. The intervention approach embodied in the widely replicated Weekend Intervention Program offers a method of alcohol/drug assessment, diagnosis and treatment induction that is both therapeutically and cost effective. It works in tandem with the community's criminal justice and human service systems.

WIP is an intensive, three-day residential program to which persons involved in a drug or alcohol offense may be remanded by a court or other agency. The major programmatic goals of the WIP are:

 1.

     

to provide a comprehensive assessment of an individual's involvement with alcohol and other psychoactive drugs;

 2.

     

to confront participant denial and encourage self-evaluation; and

 3.

     

to prepare participants for treatment when necessary and to increase their accessibility to treatment.
