THE EDUCATION and treatment of the driving while impaired offender (DWIO) has its roots in the effort of state and federal agencies during the 1970s to develop a viable answer to the serious health and safety threat of alcohol and other drug related impaired driving. Since that time, a vast corpus of research literature and education and treatment approaches have been developed to address the problem. This work, Driving With Care: Education and Treatment of the Impaired Driving Offender , makes an effort to build on this large body of literature.
