Intoxicated Driver Resource Center

Purpose

The Bergen County Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC) educates and evaluates drunk and drugged drivers, boaters, and underage drinkers who have been convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI). These offenders are mandated by the court to participate in the IDRC program. Non-compliant offenders face revocation of their licenses and possible incarceration. 

Program

The two-day program includes six hours per day of drug and alcohol education as well as screening, treatment referral, and monitoring when indicated.
