South Jersey Initiative (SJI):
SODAT is the gatekeeper for this program, which
provides funding for individuals between the ages of 13-24 to access
drug/alcohol evaluations and treatment. This program covers all levels of
treatment and is available in all eight southern New Jersey Counties. Some
funding is also available to provide funding for transportation of the
teens to their treatment appointments.
The Intoxicated Driving Program is a unit of the
Division of Addiction Services of the New Jersey/Department of Health and
Senior Services. The IDRCs are units of, or contractors to, the 21
counties of New Jersey. IDP schedules you for the 12-or 48-Hour IDRC
Program and notifies
Motor Vehicle Services (MVS) when you have completed or failed to
comply. IDP staff work with the IDRCs to insure that you are treated
fairly under the law.
If you have been convicted of an alcohol or drug-related
traffic or boating offense in New Jersey, you must satisfy the
requirements of the Intoxicated Driving Program (IDP) and of the
Intoxicated Driver Center (IDRC). These programs have two purposes: (1) to
make our highways and waterways safer by educating drivers and boat
operators about alcohol, drugs and their relation to motor vehicle and
boating safety, and (2) to identify and treat those who need treatment for
an alcohol or drug problem.
If you are sentenced as a first offender, you will be
detained, educated, and evaluated for at least six hours each day on two
consecutive days -- a total of 12 hours -- in your
county IDRC. If
you are sentenced as a second offender and not sentenced to jail or
inpatient treatment, you will be detained, educated and evaluated during a
period of 48 consecutive hours in a regional facility.
If you are sentenced as a third offender the court may
sentence you to jail or to an inpatient alcoholism treatment program or
both. IDP will schedule you to appear at the 12-hour IDRC for follow up.
You may be required to participate in additional treatment or self help.
In all cases you must satisfy the program, fee and treatment requirements
of IDP/IDRC before your license is restored.
You may be referred to a treatment program or self-help
group for alcohol or drug problems. If you are referred to treatment, it
will be for a minimum of 16 weeks. The IDRC may require monitored
treatment or self-help group attendance for a maximum of one year. You
must complete treatment as part of your sentence.

The mission of drug
courts is to stop the abuse of alcohol and other drugs
and related criminal activity. Drug courts are a highly
specialized team process that functions within the
existing Superior Court structure to address nonviolent
drug related cases. They are unique in the criminal
justice environment because they build a close
collaborative relationship between criminal justice and
drug treatment professionals. Within a cooperative
courtroom atmosphere, the judge heads a team of court
staff, attorneys, probation officers, substance abuse
evaluators, and treatment professionals all working in
concert to support and monitor a participant's recovery.
Together, they maintain a critical balance of authority,
supervision, support, and encouragement. Drug court
programs are rigorous, requiring intensive supervision
based on frequent drug testing and court appearances,
along with tightly structured regimens of treatment and
recovery services. This level of supervision permits the
program to actively support the recovery process and
react swiftly to impose appropriate therapeutic
sanctions or to reinstate criminal proceedings when
participants cannot comply with the program.
All of SODAT's offices
participate in the Drug Court Programs. Feel free
to contact any of SODAT's offices for more information.
