The Flex Modules Series from The Change Companies® is a cost-effective and flexible solution for impaired driving programs that can be delivered in a modular format to best fit the unique needs of your organization and participants. The modules can be used for a range of impaired driving programming, including first- and multiple-offender programs. All the Flex Modules resources can be used with Level I or II education interventions or as components of substance use treatment for impaired driving offenders.
The Flex Modules Impaired Driving Program has been approved by The Ministry of Health and Seniors as per Section 35K (2) of the Road Traffic Act 1947 and supported by the Bermuda Health Council.
The Flex Modules Impaired Driving Series has all the elements which would satisfy the Court that an Impaired Driver/DUI offender has received the requisite treatment to stop their offending behavior and to have their driving license returned in accordance with section 35 (K) of the Road Traffic Act 1947.
The program also has all of the elements which would satisfy the courts that a driving under the influence offender has received the requisite treatment, to make an Order for the reduction in the period of disqualification under section 4 of the Traffic Offences (Penalty) Act 1976.
The program encourages responsible decision making and can reduce recidivism by assisting participants in making positive changes to their impaired driving behavior.
Why Am I Here? invites participants to explore their arrest experiences and how they can make positive changes to their driving behavior which includes self-monitoring charts to track use and driving behavior.
Use, Misuse and Problem Use, participants explore different relationships to substances, including nonuse, responsible use, misuse and problem use and evaluate their own relationships with substances. They then consider changes they can make to their substance use to avoid impaired driving.
Feelings and Behavior explores how events can lead to self-talk, which leads to feelings, which ultimately lead to behavior. Participants explore making responsible choices at every step in this chain to avoid driving impaired.
Change vs. Consequences explores financial, legal and social consequences of impaired driving. Participants consider the process of change and the strategies that can help them make positive changes to their driving behavior. Risky driving behaviors, such as texting, are also covered.
Using the Transtheoretical Model’s stages and strategies for change, participants build a plan for avoiding another impaired driving offense using SMART goals which can act as a valuable checkpoint for program follow-up.
