Enhanced Services for Court-Referred D.U.I.L. Offenders

David H. Mulligan, Dennis McCarty

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Court-referred treatment and education for individuals arraigned for driving under the influence of liquor are increasing. At the same time, however, there is a concern that mandated treatment may be less effective than desired. Consequently, three issues are examined to suggest strategies that may enhance the effectiveness of the services provided to drunken driving offenders: (1) the role of court coercion and individual choice in entering treatment, (2) assessment of offenders and the scope of treatment recommendations made to courts, and (3) the role of treatment in individual change.
