Alameda County DUI Programs

The Alameda County Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Programs can assist individuals in completing court-ordered and DMV requirements and help reduce future DUIs. The DUI Programs will:

  • Help explore the relationship with alcohol and/or drugs and understanding of the inherent risks involved
  • Promote modified drinking/drug use in high-risk situations, such as driving under the influence
  • Provide counseling and education to reduce the likelihood of a repeat DUI offense
  • Proactively help with alcohol and/or drug problems to make life affirming choices

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, DUI programs are primarily offering services via tele-conference or tele-health, using platforms such as Zoom.

Program length is based on Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) and Vehicle Code prior DUI convictions. The cost of your DUI program is determined by which length of program the court or DMV requires. See below for information on program fees.
