Montgomery County OVI: The 72-Hour Weekend Intervention Program

montgomery county oviMontgomery County OVI 72-Hour Weekend Intervention Programs

In Montgomery County, a 1st offense OVI/DUI conviction carries a mandatory minimum 3-day jail sentence. Most courts, including Montgomery County OVI Courts, allow this minimum sentence to be satisfied by attending a state-certified 72 hour (3-day) Driver Intervention Program. Most people prefer the D.I.P. because it is usually held in local hotels rather than in the local jail.  Most courts allow a person to choose a convenient weekend and location.  Check with your Ohio OVI attorney to arrange for a convenient program if you are convicted.  An experienced attorney will be able to help you meet the court’s requirements.

Listed below are the 72 hour OVI programs available in Montgomery County, Ohio.

You can also access PROGRAM DATES, get on-line REGISTRATION FORMS, learn the RULES & REGULATIONS, get DIRECTIONS to the W.I.P. program, and learn WHAT TO EXPECT. Here are some frequently asked questions about the Wright State Weekend Intervention Program.

Is the WIP like jail?

No, WIP isn’t like jail. Ohio’s drunk driving law is a tough one though, and because we know this has been a difficult time for you, we make sure WIP is not like jail. At WIP, you are treated as a “client” of the program, not a criminal. This means you’ll be treated with dignity and respect by WIP staff members.

Why should I attend this program? I’m not an alcoholic!

WIP is not an alcoholic rehabilitation program. We don’t label our clients or assume that they have drinking problems. WIP is for people who are in trouble with the law because of alcohol. Part of your weekend will be spent in movies and lectures that will provide information with which you can make more informed decisions about drinking. You’ll also spend some time in small group discussions and individual consultation with our professional staff. These professionals will assist you in developing a plan that will help you stay out of trouble in the future. We provide some quiet time for rest and personal reflection as well.

How will attending your program help me?

We believe it can help you in several ways. First, it will allow you to fulfill your obligation to the court. Second, a state certified defensive driving course offered by WIP may allow you to earn a two-point credit on your driving record. Most importantly, though, is the fact that WIP can help you form a plan of action to stay out of this type of trouble. A recent study showed that OVI offenders who participated in WIP and followed the plan of action they worked out with their counselors were less likely to get another OVI. Of course, you’ll get out of the experience what you’re willing to put into it.

Who will know I attend WIP and what happened there?

In a word, no one. WIP will only release information about you after receiving your permission in writing. We take our clients’ confidentiality and privacy very seriously at WIP. In fact, we are even bound by federal and state laws to protect it.

Is the WIP certified?

Yes. The WIP is certified by Ohio’s Department of Alcohol & Drug Addiction Services. As a certified program, the WIP conforms to all appropriate state regulations.

How is the Wright State School of Medicine involved?

The Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University is WIP’s home. An official program of the School of Medicine, WIP is part of Wright State’s commitment to our community’s health and well-being. The WIP also educates medical students about drinking and drug problems and provides opportunities for research.

Who pays for the WIP?

The fees our clients pay cover many program costs, including food, accommodations, materials, and professional services. Wright State’s Boonshoft School of Medicine underwrites all other costs.

When do I have to pay for this?

We expect full payments two weeks prior to your scheduled date to attend WIP. Payment can be made by certified check or money order, or for your convenience, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted. We would be pleased to respond to further questions you have regarding fees.

If you have additional questions about the Wright State Weekend Intervention Program, contact Charles Rowland by phone at 937-318-1DUI (937-318-1384), 937-879-9542, or toll-free at 1-888-ROWLAND (1-888-769-5263).  For after-hours help contact our 24/7 DUI HOTLINE at 937-776-2671.  Immediate help is available by filling out this CONTACT form.  For information about Dayton DUI sent directly to your mobile device, text DaytonDUI (one word) to 50500.  Follow DaytonDUI on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/DaytonDUI or Get Twitter updates via SMS by texting follow DaytonDUI to 40404. DaytonDUI is also available on Facebook and you can access updates by becoming a fan of Dayton DUI.  You can also email Charles Rowland at: CharlesRowland@CharlesRowland.com or write to us at 2190 Gateway Dr., Fairborn, Ohio 45324.
