DWI Classes: Drivers Education Program


For individuals who have committed substance abuse related driving offenses but do not require intensive addiction treatment

Club Recovery offers Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) Drivers Education, Level I (6 credit hours) and Level II (total 12 credit hours).   The DWI classes at Club Recovery may benefit individuals who have committed substance abuse-related driving infractions, but do not require intensive addiction treatment services.  DWI classes may be recommended for individuals who:

  • Are involved in a first driving offence involving drinking or drugs
  • Report abusing alcohol or drugs and have a driving-related offence on their record

A valid assessment with a recommendation or referral from a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor is required to participate in our DWI Drivers Education course. If you are not referred to these classes by Club Recovery’s clinical staff, then you are responsible for determining if this course meets your needs.  At the time of enrollment, Club Recovery will ask clients referred by other programs to provide a copy of their completed chemical health assessment with a recommendation for DWI Drivers Education.


DWI Drivers Education Classes are available on the following schedule:

  • Level I is offered on the 2nd Saturday each month – 9:15am to 4:00pm
  • Level II is offered on 3rd Saturday each month – 9:30am to 4:00pm
