Crossroads Counseling Services is certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health (OhioMHAS) and is operated by qualified individuals, including certified Chemical Dependency Counselors.
The 72- hour Driver Intervention Program is designed as an alternative to incarceration for the first-time DUI/OVI offenders. The program focuses on changing attitudes, beliefs, behaviors related to drinking and driving as well as the use/abuse of chemicals.
The Driver Intervention Program fee is $425. This fee is due in full 2 weeks prior to a class. A $100 dollar deposit is required to schedule a class. Only the first 20 people to pay a deposit will be scheduled for each class.
Cancellations must be made 2 weeks before the scheduled class. Any cancellations made after the 2 weeks will result in a $50.00 rescheduling fee. Clients who are absent to the program without notice risk losing their deposit.
The program begins Thursday at 3:00 P.M. and continues through Sunday at 3:00 P.M.
The program is typically held every other weekend. For exact dates and availability, contact Crossroads at 740-695-9447.
