In 1985-6, a comprehensive survey of drink-driver rehabilitation programs in Australia was undertaken. This process and a subsequent review of the literature suggests that there are important functional and therapeutic issues which need to be addressed if these programs are to be made more efficient and effective. These problems include the paradigm which should underlie programs, the adequacy of existing methods of detecting drink drivers, referral procedures, attendance options, and the potential benefits of tailoring programs for specific client groups. Other issues include decisions about existing treatment approaches, the value of maintenance programs, contingencies for change and how such changes might be measured. It is concluded that few existing programs have addresesd these issues, making the evaluation of current drink driver programs difficult.
