TEXAS DRUG OFFENDER
Our program is approved by the State of Texas and meets the requirements as defined below.
Section 521.371-521.377, Texas Transportation Code (formerly Article 6687b, Section 24B, Texas Civil Statutes) states that persons convicted of misdemeanor or felony drug offenses will automatically have their licenses suspended for a period of six months. To have their license reinstated, they must attend and successfully complete an education program on the dangers of drug abuse approved by the department.
Failure to complete the program will result in the license being revoked indefinitely until the education program is completed.

Specific course topics include: history of drug abuse, drug and DWI laws, dynamics of drug use, drugs of abuse, how drugs work, cost of use and abuse, health issues, HIV, interpersonal relationships, deglamorization of drugs, values and behaviors, past and desired behaviors, getting control of your life, resource options, and personal action planning.
