The Mistaken Beliefs of Drinking Drivers: Using Group Therapy to Reduce Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Recidivism

Due to the failure of current combinations of interventions ordered by the courts in sentencing, the difficulty to accurately assess clients with chemical health assessments, and efficacy of current alcohol treatment modalities, driving under the influence (DUI) recidivism has not been positively affected. This thesis explores the Adlerian concept of mistaken beliefs with regard to drinking drivers and examines the results of an independent anonymous survey of Minnesota drinking drivers‘ mistaken beliefs. A curriculum for a DUI offender group therapy process was developed in an attempt to provide a new alternative intervention to decrease DUI recidivism rates in Minnesota
