Drink Drive, Drug Drive
Ballarat Community Health behaviour change programs are still continuing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, currently delivering both face-to-face and online!
If you have lost your licence due to a drink or drug driving offence, the process of having it restored may seem challenging. At BCH, our alcohol and other drug team is committed to assisting individuals and families who are dealing with alcohol or other drug-related issues.
Ballarat Community Health behaviour change programs are still continuing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, delivered both virtually and face-to-face. Participants will need access to a device with a camera and an internet connection. Our behaviour change programs are held regularly throughout the year. Registration and payment are required prior to the course commencing.
Our programs are delivered by experienced alcohol and other drug facilitators, who can help you by:
- providing drink or drug driving behaviour change programs
- conducting assessments and submitting court reports as required
- providing someone to talk to about the process
- assisting other professionals with information and support.

A refund will be provided to a participant only when the provider fails to facilitate a booked program. There are no other circumstances in which a refund will be provided.
Clients who are unable to attend the program must notify us at least 5-working days prior to course commencement in order for alternative arrangements to be made.
Failure to attend
Clients who fail to attend a session will have to re-enrol in a new program and pay new program fees unless a valid GP medical certificate is provided. VicRoads stipulate that any rescheduled session must take place within four-weeks of the last attended session; Ballarat Community Health cannot guarantee availability within that timeframe. If there is no availability then you will need to re-enrol in a new program and pay new program fees.
Late arrivals will not be guaranteed entrance. Start times are strictly adhered to. If you are denied entrance then you will need to re-enrol in a new program and pay new program fees.
