Impaired Driving Intervention Program
The Pretrial Impaired Driving Intervention Program, or "IDIP," allows certain individuals charged with DUI in Connecticut to get their charges either reduced or dismissed altogether. Even if you complete the program, a judge may not be satisfied with your results and thus may order the prosecution of your DUI charges. As such, it's important to consult with a lawyer to ensure you are well-positioned for success in the IDIP program. To learn more about the IDIP in Connecticut, visit our blog and the link below.
Drug Intervention and Community Service Program
If you are facing charges for drug possession or drug paraphernalia, you may qualify for Connecticut's Drug Intervention and Community Service Program (DICSP). If you are eligible for the DICSP, you would be required to attend a series of drug education classes or a series of substance use treatments, or both. If completed successfully, your drug charges may get reduced or even dismissed. Given the seriousness of drug charges in Connecticut, you should consult with an attorney to learn if you are eligible for this program and advocate for you throughout the process.
