Brief Motivational Interview curtails recidivist drunk driving

This study almost seems too good to be true. A brief, 30 minute, motivational interview helped hard core drunk drivers reduce their drunk driving according to this study.

You can read a brief report of the study by clicking here.

The study will appear in Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, November, 2009.

While a bit different, GCASA offers a victim impact panel once per month for about 25-40 offenders. Based on the evaluations of the sessions, most people who attend report being highly motivated to never drink and drive again.
