TEXAS DRUG OFFENDER EDUCATION PROGRAM (DOEP)
You or someone that you know got caught with any other drug other than alcohol?
Then DOEP may be one of the things that you need to do to satisfy the court’s mandates along with other conditions imposed by the court or as a condition imposed by your job for failing a drug test.
The following article is created by the state of Texas: Section 521.371-521.377, Texas Transportation Code (formerly Article 6687b, Section 24B, Texas Civil Statutes) states that persons convicted of misdemeanor or felony drug offenses will automatically have their licenses suspended for a period of six months. In order to have their license reinstated, they must attend and successfully complete an education program on the dangers of drug abuse approved by TCADA. Failure to complete the program will result in the license being revoked indefinitely until the education program is completed.
The standardized program is of 15 hours in length, and it is designed to increase the knowledge of drug offenders by educating them of the danger of drug abuse and associated illegal activities. To identify their individual drug-use patterns, and to assist them in developing a personal action plan that will reduce the probability of suffering the consequences of future drug using and illegal behavior.
Course topics include the history of drug abuse, drug/DWI laws, dynamics of drug use, drugs of abuse, how drugs work, cost of use and abuse, health issues, HIV, interpersonal relationships, deglamorization of drugs, values and behaviors, past and desired behaviors, getting control of your life, resource options, and a personal action planning. We want to think that you as anyone else deserves a second opportunity in life. You can give yourself this second opportunity so start by projecting a new you of living. No matter if the rest of the world does not believe in you, just remember that Animo does.
