Intoxicated Driving Program (IDP)
The New Jersey Intoxicated Driving Program (IDP) is responsible for the administration of post-conviction interventions for individuals convicted of alcohol or drug-related driving under the influence (DUI) offenses. Through a partnership between the Department of Human Services (DHS), Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), and the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC), the IDP (1) administers the state’s post-conviction DUI offenses system, (2) approves and coordinates a network of county-based and regional Intoxicated Driving Resource Centers (IDRCs) that detain, educate, and screen consumers to determine the need for additional addictions treatment interventions, (3) recommends appropriate license action (suspensions and/or restorations) to the Motor Vehicle Commission, and (4) manages various other issues regarding documentation, general information and response to public inquiry.

Special Funding for DUI Convicted Offenders Requiring Addictions Treatment (DUII Program)Driving Under the Influence Initiative (DUII)
New Jersey has set aside $7.5 million to support the treatment of financially indigent residents of New Jersey who have been convicted of a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) offense. Individuals must be clinically assessed and determined to be in need of substance abuse treatment services and meet financial eligibility requirements, and have a DUI conviction after October 17, 2005 in order to access the DUII funding. Financially indigent intoxicated drivers can receive the appropriate level and duration of treatment warranted, thus reducing the incidence of recidivism among intoxicated drivers and ultimately creating safer highways.
Annually, the DUII funds provide treatment for more than 6,500 New Jersey residents who have had DUI convictions.
To be eligible for this funding initiative, you must be a resident of the State of New Jersey, have a DUI conviction on or after, October 17, 2005, and, meet the financial eligibility requirements.
