The McKinley County DWI Program is working to overcome the challenges associated with alcohol use disorder to create a safer community.
The local DWI program allows for multi-pronged approach to reducing DWI, alcoholism, and alcohol use. We know that many things by themselves help (treatment and enforcement for example), but using multiple strategies to combat the problem has a much greater effect. Therefore, local DWI Programs can fund different components (Prevention; Screening; compliance monitoring/ tracking; Coordination, planning and evaluation; Treatment. The local DWI Program must provide services throughout the county, to reach as many people as possible).
As of 2020, there are 7 proven LDWI components. The McKinley County DWI Program is working on filling the needs and gaps of the community through these 7 proven components:
- Alternative Sentencing
- Compliance Monitoring
- Law Enforcement
