This paper describes an innovative court-based intervention for repeat impaired-driving offenders, the driving under the influence (DUI) Intensive Supervision Program (DISP) developed in Multnomah County, Oregon, which showed promise as an effective means of reducing recidivism among repeat impaired-driving offenders.
Preliminary results of a trial using an innovative court-based intervention for repeat impaired-driving offenders—the driving under the influence (DUI) Intensive Supervision Program (DISP) developed in Multnomah County, Oregon—suggest the DISP is an effective means of reducing recidivism among repeat impaired-driving offenders. Repeat impaired-drivers resist successful rehabilitation. The hazard of re-offending was compared between DISP participants (N = 460) and a comparison group (N = 497). The stratified Cox proportional hazards model was used to model the hazard of re-offense, adjusting for matching criteria and stratified by county of residence. Adjusted hazard of DUI re-offense for DISP participants was 0.52 that of comparison offenders (95% CI = 0.36–0.76). DISP clients also had lower arrest rates for driving while revoked/suspended and for all other traffic offenses. (Published Abstract Provided)
