Special Funding for DUI Convicted Offenders Requiring Addictions Treatment (DUII Program)
Driving Under the Influence Initiative (DUII)
New Jersey has set aside $7.5 million to support the treatment of financially indigent residents of New Jersey who have been convicted of a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) offense.  Individuals must be clinically assessed and determined to be in need of substance abuse treatment services and meet financial eligibility requirements, and have a DUI conviction after October 17, 2005 in order to access the DUII funding.  Financially indigent intoxicated drivers can receive the appropriate level and duration of treatment warranted, thus reducing the incidence of recidivism among intoxicated drivers and ultimately creating safer highways.

Annually, the DUII funds provide treatment for more than 6,500 New Jersey residents who have had DUI convictions.

To be eligible for this funding initiative, you must be a resident of the State of New Jersey, have a DUI conviction on or after, October 17, 2005, and, meet the financial eligibility requirements.
