Drink Drive, Drug Drive

Ballarat Community Health Behaviour Change programs are held regularly throughout the year. Registration and payment are required prior to the course commencing.

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.

Everyone who has had their licence suspended or cancelled for drink or drug driving will need to participate in a driver behaviour change program. BCH offers:

  1. Drink Drive and Drug Drive Behaviour Change programs, comprised of two 3-hour sessions
  2. Intensive Drink and Drug Driver programs, comprised of three 3-hour group sessions, after which participants will also be required to attend an hour-long one-on-one counselling session.
  3. Pre-Interlock Removal programs, delivered in one 2 hour session.

Our programs are delivered by experienced alcohol and other drug facilitators, who can help you by:

  • providing Drink or Drug Driving Behaviour Change program
  • conducting assessments and submitting court reports as required
  • providing someone to talk to about the process
  • assisting other professionals with information and support.

To register for a program, email your name and contact details, along with your program preference, to aodintake@bchc.org.au.
