Our Driving Forwards Programme is a group work programme for recidivist drink drivers. It is currently available in Manawatu, Counties Manukau and the Wairarapa. Participants are usually referred to us by the justice system.

The programme focuses on motivating recidivist drink drivers to change their behaviour and provide strategies to do this. The course include a combination of alcohol education, information on safer driving, victim awareness and managing high risk situations.
