Driving with Care: Education and Treatment of the Underage Impaired Driving Offender is a supplementary guide for the Driving with Care Series. It deals specifically with Adolescent/young adult impaired driving, which presents a host of special challenges and special treatment issues. Underage impaired driving represents 15% of the DUI arrests nationwide, which translates into roughly 150,000 individuals a year. Underage drivers present a special challenge for education and treatment as their motivation to drink and drive is often quite different from the adult offender. Thus, the authors have compiled a rich set of educational protocols and treatment strategies that can supplement the various levels of treatment provided in all three Driving with Care workbooks. Section I provides a theoretical foundation for understanding underage impaired driving, including the scope, incidence, and prevalence of the problem and defines the causal and risk factors associated with underage drinking and driving. It also defines and covers legal and regulatory interventions that have been effective for treatment and provides guidelines that enhance the treatment and rehabilitation of this group. Section II provides specific guidelines and enhancements for the delivery of DWC for underage drivers, including activities, handouts, and various assessment tools.
