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.
