The Restoring Our Community Program (ROC) is a voluntary substance use disorder treatment program designed for men who have three or more drinking/drugging and driving offenses (DUI/DWAI/DUID, etc.). ROC emphasizes learning new ways to think and behave that can assist clients in dealing with the stressors of life, without resorting to drinking or using drugs. It promotes critical thinking and encourages the goal of lasting sobriety. Abstinence from alcohol and drugs is required during the entire time in the program.
The ROC program collaborates with the DUI Integrated Treatment Team (DITT) in the delivery of substance abuse treatment services. DITT incorporates the principles of incentives, sanctions, bi-weekly reviews, as well as safety checks and monitored sobriety by the Probation department. DITT is an Alternative Sentence Descriptions that allows a person to continue working while satisfying a jail sentence.
Major benefits of the program includes learning skills such as relapse prevention, problems solving, communication and relationship building that will teach you how to manage stress and difficult emotions, while enhancing your motivation to change. Most important is reducing your risk of re-offending. The ROC program can provide you with the tools to reduce and/or eliminate this behavior. You will be in groups with other men working on similar problems. Group interaction and support can be helpful as you work toward making changes in your life.
The program is one of the major steps towards driving legally again; it is licensed by the State of Colorado to provide specific treatment that satisfies court-ordered Level II education and therapy requirements. Upon successfully completing the year-long program, clients will receive a discharge referral summary (DRS), a necessary step in driver’s license reinstatement.
