Intoxicated Driver Resource Center
Welcome to the Camden County IDRC
Beginning January 2020, Camden County College was chosen to operate the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC) to service individuals convicted of operating a vehicle while under the influence. Our mission is to provide professional and courteous service to individuals who have been mandated to attend the 12-Hour Educational Program, and who may require additional assessment and treatment.
12-Hour Educational Program
If you have received a letter from the State of New Jersey’s Intoxicated Driver Program, you must attend the IDRC class as per the scheduled time and location on your letter. (Sample below)
The 12-hour class is broken into two consecutive days, both of which must be completed. The purpose of the class is to provide information on New Jersey laws regarding drugs and alcohol while operating a vehicle, substance use and abuse, the impact of drugs and alcohol on physical and mental health, driver safety, and to help prevent recurring substance-related driving offenses.
During class, attendees will be individually screened to determine if an assessment by a professional substance use treatment agency is necessary.
All classes will be held during non-business hours for your convenience. Officers of Public Safety will be on-site at all times.
If you do not speak English, or are deaf or hard of hearing, please contact the office via email at IDRC@camdencc.edu

All individuals will receive a confidential screening during the 12-hour class. You may meet the criteria outlined by the State of New Jersey to be referred to a professional treatment agency specializing in substance use and abuse. If this is the case, you will be provided a list of affiliate agencies in Camden County. Lists of additional treatment agencies outside of the county can also be provided.

You may be placed into a treatment program by the agency. If this is the case, the IDRC will monitor your progress. The IDRC will report your status to the State and original court of conviction in order to close out your case after successful completion.

Records are restricted and no information can be disclosed unless you sign a Records Release Form granting a specific individual or organization permission. We will not discuss your case with anyone, including family, medical, or legal personnel without signed consent.
