1. Intake / Screening Interview

This is the first of four components to Impaired Driver Care Management Programs (IDCMP) in New Hampshire. The complete description can be found in the New Hampshire Code of Administrative Rules (He-A 500).

Please note that the full process DOES NOT apply for individuals who DO NOT have DWI/DUI convictions on a New Hampshire Motor Vehicle record. Only the initial intake interview applies for these clients.

The intake/screening interview is completed prior to your participation in any IDCMP component. The interview entails an orientation to the specific program that you are required to complete, the administration of required standardized assessment instruments, the compilation of statistical data and your completion of the Department of Health and Human Services contracts.

The screening/intake interviewer who conducts this interview reviews the data and test instruments and determines if you are classified as positive for a likelihood of a substance use disorder. This determination is based upon criteria cited in the New Hampshire Code of Administrative rules.

If you are determined to be positive for a likelihood of a substance use disorder, you will be required to complete the three program components listed below.

If you are determined to be negative for a likelihood of substance use disorder, you will be required to complete program component #4 listed below.

Please note: You cannot be more than fifteen (15) minutes late for this interview. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will be required to reschedule and pay a fifty dollar ($50.00) missed appointment fee.
