The report describes the preliminary results of a controlled study of the effects of punitive sanctions and group therapy on the subsequent behavior of individuals arrested for Driving under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) in Oklahoma City during the period April, 1975 through June, 1976. Quasi-random assignments of 402 individuals convicted of DUI were made to four treatment groups which represented control, punitive, rehabilitation and a combination of rehabilitation and punitive efforts. Initial, six and twelve-month (post-initial) personal interviews and driver record checks were conducted to determine DUI recidivism rates, accidents, and short-term life style changes of the study participants.
