Drug Offender Education Classes

Texas Transportation Code 521.371-521.377 states that the driver’s license of any person convicted of a misdemeanor or felony drug offense will be automatically suspended for 180 days, or 1 year, if under 21 years of age. To qualify for license reinstatement, individuals MUST attend, & successfully complete, a certified DOEP (Drug Offender Education Program). Failure to complete this DOEP intervention course will extend suspension of their driver’s license indefinitely, until the program is successfully completed. Upon completing this course, participants receive a serially numbered certificate, which can be submitted to DPS for license reinstatement.

Relapse Outpatient Program (IOP)

Outpatient Relapse Treatment Programs

Relapse prevention is the method of teaching recovering patients identify and manage relapse warning signs. Relapse prevention is the primary focus for those who have difficulties staying sober. Recovery from substance abuse is not only the absence of abusing substances it is a full return to biological psychological and social functioning. Patients struggling with relapse and relapse-based issues are invited to join this interactive therapy program that targets specific triggers and the special coping skills needed to transcend them. Individuals in this program share experiences and focus on social, work and leisure environments to avoid common addiction pitfalls. These patients are encouraged to confront self-defeating behaviors through personal and spiritual reflection. By recognizing their behavioral patterns, we hope these recovering addicts learn to strengthen specific coping skills, thereby increasing their chance of a full and successful recovery.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms you may be interested in seeking help:

  • Have a mistaken belief that causes irrational thoughts
  • Began to return to addictive thinking pattern that cause painful feelings
  • Engage in compulsive, self-defeating behaviors as away to avoid the feelings
  • Seek out situations involving people who use mood-altering substances
  • Find yourself in a situation in which drug or alcohol use seems like a logical escape from their pain, and then use alcohol or drugs.

Upon completion of the relapse prevention plan you will be able to:

  • Abstain from alcohol and other mood altering substances
  • Separate from people, places, and things that promote the use of alcohol or drugs, and establish a social network that supports recovery
  • Stop self-defeating behaviors that prevent awareness of painful feelings and irrational thoughts
  • Learn how to manage feelings and emotions responsibly without resorting to compulsive behavior or the use of alcohol or drugs
  • Learn how to change addictive thinking patterns that create painful feelings and self-defeating behaviors
  • Identify and change the mistaken core beliefs about oneself, others, and the world that promote irrational thinking.

Getting Started

I think I may have a substance abuse issue. What do I do now?

Accepting chemical dependency is a vital but difficult step in the recovery process. Listening to your inner feelings about how you feel is the first step. Are you happy about the choices you have made? Are you where you want to be in life? Why can’t I stop using, despite all the problems it has caused? If you are asking yourselves any of the questions you may want to be assessed by a professional to determine if there may be an issue.
