Prime for Life

OWI Violator Program

This is the 12-hour DOT required OWI (operating while intoxicated) course.

Prime for Life is program designed to gently but powerfully challenge common beliefs and attitudes that directly contribute to high-risk alcohol and drug use. The content, process and sequence of the program are carefully developed to achieve both prevention and intervention goals. The program goals are:

  1. To reduce problems caused by high-risk drinking or drug use;
     
  2. To reduce the risk for long-term health problems and short-term impairment problems;
     
  3. To help people successfully protect the things they value.
    Using persuasion-based teaching, instructors use a variety of teaching approaches, including interactive presentation and small group discussion. Participants use work books throughout the course to complete a number of individual and group activities. Material is presented using a DVD platform with animation, full-motion video clips, and audio clips to enhance the presentation.
