Grampians Community Health now offers a local Drug Drive Program.  People who have lost their licence due to drug driving offences are now able to complete a one day program in Horsham or Stawell.

The course aims to provide people with a better understanding of different drugs and their effects, and how to develop strategies to reduce the risks associated with drug use.  Participants will learn about the legalities of drug driving, and gain an understanding of the risks associated with drug impaired driving.  Course facilitators are experienced in adult learning principles, where participants are treated with respect and positive reinforcement used to encourage participation.

Grampians Community Health has provided Alcohol & Other Drug Services for over 28 years, and delivered the Drink Drive program for 22 years.  In 2014 we applied for accreditation with the Victorian Accredited Driver Education Programs to deliver the Drug Drive Program and assessments to residents across the Wimmera and Grampians regions.  Having this accreditation means improved access to the course for people in our local community.

The first Drug Drive program will be offered in Horsham next Wednesday the 18th March.
