The DUI MAT integration/Outreach Project is a pilot project developed by California's Department of Health Care Services to address the opioid crisis in the State of California. The purpose of the program is to reach DUI Program participant who may have an unmet need in receiving treatment for opioid and other possible dependencies.
The DUI MAT Integration/OUtreach program is separate from the DUI Program requirements and is confidential under the Federal Drug and Alcohol Confidentiality Laws (CFR 42 Part2). Participation will not affect the DUI court case, probation requirements or status with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
There is no cost to participate in this program and most treatment options offered have no, or minimal costs. There is always the option of deciding which treatment referrals are best for you. If you choose to participate in this program, now or at any time during your DUI program, Prevention Education will provide support to you during your participation in the program.
