Over the course of the past decade, great strides have been made in the development and implementation of innovative approaches in the fight against drunk driving and other alcohol-fueled offenses. Sobriety checkpoints. Proven technologies for the car and the person. Specialty courts with rehabilitation in mind, not just punishment. High-intensity probation teams. Promising new court models like Hawaii’s groundbreaking HOPE Probation.

In Sobering Up, we will be highlighting many of the programs and innovations that are Making a Difference today, as well as the ones expected to bring further innovation and improvement down the road. While we’ll certainly be sharing details about programs that are Making a Difference, we’ll be shining the spotlight on the individuals that are leading the charge. Judges, probation and parole officers, legislators, researchers, policymakers, practitioners, prosecutors, law enforcement, community leaders, and advocates.

Do you know a program or an individual who is Making a Difference? E-mail us and let us know! We want to share their stories, learn from them, and maybe even help others duplicate their successes.
