Drink Drive, Drug Drive

Ballarat Community Health Drink Drive Behaviour Change programs are held regularly at our Ballarat Central location—28 Victoria Street, Bakery Hill—subject to availability. Registration and payment are required prior to the course commencing.

If you’ve lost your licence due to a drink or drug driving offence, the process of having it restored may seem challenging. At BCH, our alcohol & other drug team is committed to assisting individuals and families who are dealing with alcohol or other drug related issues.

Everyone who has had their licence suspended or cancelled for drink or drug driving will need to participate in a driver behaviour change program. The program is delivered by experienced alcohol and other drug facilitators.

The Intensive Behaviour Change Program is delivered over three 3-hour group sessions. Participants will also be required to attend an hour-long one-on-one counselling session.

The Pre-Interlock Removal Program is delivered in one 2 hour session.

Program cost

Intensive Program: $750 including $67 VicRoads fee or concession rate of $720 including $34 VicRoads fee.

BCH can help you by:
