STATUS OF INQUIRY FOR ESTABLISHING A "DWI" INSTITUTE

This paper reports the results of an inquiry into the possibility for establishing a DWI Institute. It is concluded that a DWI Institute is an attractive idea with many potential benefits for DWI reeducation and rehabilitation programs. However, it would be very expensive if set up and operated as an independent organization. A DWI Institute could be operated more efficiently and less expensively by an organization already devoting considerable attention and resources to DWI rehabilitation programs--such, for example, as the Naval Alcohol Safety Action Program, or the state of Florida or New York and their respective DWI programs. A revitalized, restructured NASASA (National Association of State Alcohol Safety Administrators), with adequate funding from member states, might also successfully house the "Institute." It is also concluded that if a DWI Institute does not eventuate, whatever the reasons, a considerable number of the functions envisioned for it should be attempted through the ways and means described in this paper.
