Drug Impairment Intervention Training
August 11 - August 12
With approximately 118,000 individuals enrolling in Driving-Under-the-Influence (DUI) programs annually, there
is an opportunity to expand intervention and outreach amongst offenders with underlying opioid use disorder
(OUD) and/or substance use disorder (SUD). In addition to DUI programs serving as intervention programs,
others working in and around the SUD field with the knowledge and ability to promptly recognize drug
impairment are at a greater advantage to provide those at-risk with an opportunity for immediate intervention
and direction to appropriate services to assist individuals seeking recovery services and support. The California
Highway Patrol (CHP), Impaired Driving Section (IDS), will deliver training intended to increase awareness of
physiologic signs and symptoms associated with drug use and impairment, with an emphasis on opioids.
The Drug Impairment Intervention Training (DIIT) is funded through the State Opioid Response grant as
part of the MAT Expansion Project from the California Department of Health Care Services.
