Treatment and Staff
Outpatient treatment lasts approximately 18 weeks, depending on attendance. Clients attend group therapy at least once a week and have individual therapy as-needed, usually once a month. Groups address both addiction education and processing skills and use CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and the 12-step framework.
Groups don’t exceed 20 participants and are led by addiction counselors with the CADC credential. While many of DBI’s clients have co-occurring disorders, these clients are also referred to nearby psychiatrists and mental health clinics for dual diagnosis support.
DBI requires abstinence from drugs and alcohol in all of its programs and believes that peer support meetings are an important component of a recovery plan. It requires all clients to attend at least 19 AA/NA meetings while enrolled in the outpatient program.
DBI’s also offers a 15-hour Reckless Driving program in addition to its DUI First and Multiple Offender programs.
Driver Benefits, Inc. has been serving the South Bay region of greater Los Angeles for over 40 years. Its 18-week standard outpatient program provides clients with extensive addiction education and an introduction to the processing skills that will help them inhibit substance abuse and avoid its consequences.
