The Impact of Remedial Intervention on Three-Year Recidivism Among First-Time DUI Offenders in Mississippi

Publication Abstract

Roberson, Anglea, Sheena Gardner, Xiaohe Xu, and Humphrey Costello. 2009. "The Impact of Remedial Intervention on Three-Year Recidivism Among First-Time DUI Offenders in Mississippi." Accident Analysis & Prevention, 41: 1080-1086.

This study examines the impact of the Mississippi Alcohol Safety Education Program (MASEP), a court-mandated intervention program, on 3-yearrecidivism rates among first-timeDUIoffenders (i.e. those convicted of a first offense for driving under the influence of alcohol or another drug). It also examines whether a new version of the curriculum that incorporates activities to enhance motivation for change further ameliorates recidivism. Cox proportional hazard regression models are used to compare recidivism rates among DUIoffenders who completed MASEP with those who did not complete or who failed to enroll in the program. Recidivism rates were also compared for MASEP participants across time periods during which curriculum revisions were introduced. The hazard of recidivism was lower for individuals who completed the program than for individuals who did not complete or did not enroll in the program. Recidivism rates were further reduced following the introduction of curriculum revisions. Attendance of court-mandated remedialintervention programs lower subsequent DUI arrests and program content is associated with lower rates.
