In the event you were referred to me by the Impaired Driver Program, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker that has been approved by the New York State Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse (OASAS) to conduct assessments and treatment for substance use disorders.
I understand the stress, anger and anxiety you may be feeling at this moment, but please remember that I’m here to help you not to judge you. You’ve been judged enough and right now our work is to restore your driving privileges as quickly and as safely as possible.
All of my evaluations include an extensive clinical interview, state of the art metrics widely used in the field of substance use disorders, results of the evaluation and any treatment recommendations if needed. If treatment is necessary, and you so choose, I am also approved to provide you with the treatment.
As an OASAS approved provider once the evaluation and treatment are completed I will be able to enter all the necessary information into the New York State Impaired Driver System (IDS) so that the DMV can restore your driving privileges.
