Annotation: This handbook for participants in the Multnomah County Circuit Court of Oregon’s DUII (driving under the influence of intoxicants) Intensive Supervision Program (DISP) explains the features of the program and prepares participants to comply with DISP probation requirements.
Abstract: As intensive supervision implies, participants will be required to participate in some program activities each day for the duration of the program. For a misdemeanor DUII, the probation will be for 3 years; and for felony DUII, probation lasts 5 years. Honesty is the key to probation success. This involves self-reporting probation violations. Hidden violations and repeat violations will bring severe sanctions, including the reinstatement of suspended fines and significant jail time. Intensive probation involves abstinence from using alcohol and drugs for the full duration of the probation and not driving for the entire probation term and possibly longer. Requirements related to the case manager are specified in detail, which pertain to meetings, compliance difficulties, and other matters pertinent to probation requirements. There are four phases in the DISP, with each phase having distinctive requirements. Phase I involves electronic monitoring and substance abuse treatment intended to achieve abstinence from alcohol and drug abuse. Steps to be completed before moving on to Phase II are specified. Phase II focuses on learning techniques for maintaining sobriety and continuing to comply with probation requirements. Phase III is the period when the probationer focuses on extended recovery and improving overall quality of life. Phase IV is reserved for those participants who demonstrate full compliance with DISP conditions and have earned their way to less intensive supervision. All probation conditions still apply, including random urinalysis and reporting to court when directed. One section of the handbook provides detailed information on the avoidance of any substance with alcohol or a prohibited drug.
