Driving While Impaired (DWI) by Alcohol, Convictions Among Alcohol, Cocaine, and Cannabis Clients in Treatment

In this paper, DWI conviction refers to those for alcohol only, and not specifically other drugs. The purpose of the paper is to compare DWI convictions among clients in treatment for alcohol, cannabis, cocaine, or various combinations of these substances, compared to a matched population control group. A sample of driver records was drawn from client groups who sought treatment i 1994 for alcohol, cannabis, cocaine or any combination of these substances. Logistic regression analysis was conducted to assess whether DWI convictions were elevated for each of the seven client groups. The results indicated that DWI convictions are elevated among those who also used cocaine but not among cannabis users.
