Our DWI First Offender Program and our DWI Repeat Offender (DWI Intervention) Class Schedule has been announced! Our classes are led by instructors who are dedicated to making this experience meaningful and as positive as possible for you. We have some rules that we are required to follow, which are outlined by the State requirements.

You will need to register in advance and complete your enrollment paperwork no later than 3pm the day prior to the first class date. The course cost is non-refundable and non-transferable. So, please be sure that you are can make it to your class that you sign up for before completing the enrollment process. You are required to attend all classes and be on time. Failure to do so will result in a loss of your time and money. We really don’t like when that happens, so please be sure to be on time!

For our DWI three day class, you will be in class for 12 hours and you will be required to pass a test and complete a couple of in class assignments. Don’t worry though, if you pay attention in class, and we do our best to keep your focus through our engaging and interactive instruction, then you should have no problem passing the class!

For our DWI Intervention program, which is also commonly referred to as the Repeat Offender Program, you will attend 30 hours of class. The classes meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6p to 8p. You will need to bring a family member to two of the classes, this is class 9 and 10. We know this sounds terrible and we did not make up the rule, but we do have to comply with it. However, believe it or not most of our participants report that the family classes were not as bad as they thought it would be and they actually enjoyed them.

Please note, especially due to COVID-19 our class size is limited so be sure to register early to get the class you want. You can also ask to be placed on our waiting list for the class you want by calling our office at 972-905-6574.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

We Sponsored It, Worked It, and Enjoyed It!

Rebound Event 1The Plainedge Drug Free Youth Coalition & Plainedge Council of PTAs continues to strive to educate students, staff, and the community about the realities of drug abuse and poor choices.

As part of its ongoing mission, we are sponsoring an upcoming event, “Rebound, the Chris Herren Story.” In this very personal presentation, Chris will share his story in a brutally honest format with just a microphone. The event will start with a 5 minute DVD introducing Chris Herren and showing highlights of his basketball career and his dream to play in the NBA which began to unravel by making a few bad decisions. From growing up in Fall River, MA to playing Division 1 basketball and in the NBA, he will take the audience on his journey from addiction to sobriety. Additionally, he will relate his story to the audience addressing themes of gateway drugs, prescription drug abuse, drinking and driving as well as self-harm. To conclude the event Chris will field questions from the audience. After the speech, Chris will greet anyone who may need to speak with him further regarding themselves or a loved one. (1 Hour plus Q&A Session).
