IDRC Requirements Under New Jersey Law

The IDRC maintains centers in every county. These centers provide alcohol education and evaluation services for those convicted of DWI. The following is a breakdown of the IDRC requirements that are imposed at the time of sentencing for DUI:

  • First Offense. An individual must serve 12-48 in the IDRC for a first offense The agency can charge up to $75 per day for participation in the program. During the course of serving time in the IDRC, an alcohol evaluation is conducted. If a determination is made that further treatment is required, the defendant must follow the direction of the agency. Failure to comply with the treatment requirements of IDRC will result in issuance of a non-compliance and your returning to court for resentencing. The court may order up to two days of incarceration and an additional license suspension for failure to successfully complete IDRC. Click here for more information regarding a first offense.
  • Second Offense. A defendant must serve 48 hours in the IDRC as a result of being convicted of a second DWI offense. The per diem fee is $100 per day. Failure to serve the required 48 hours results in conversation of the time to a county jail term. An additional period of suspension may also be imposed.

What Clients Say About Our Ocean County Criminal Defense Attorneys
Exemplary attorneys. I hired them for a DUI and an expungement. I was happy with the results for both cases. Special thank you to Samera for always answering all of my calls and questions JC
I'm 45 years old and this was my first time ever getting in trouble with the law. I was in need of a lawyer and after careful research, I called John F. Marshall Attorneys and was introduced to Abe Basch. Abe was professional, supportive and very thorough. I had three charges against me, one civil and two criminal. I was so scared and expressed that to Abe. The first day I had to go to court, I was an absolute nervous wreck but Abe prepped me and kept my anxiety levels down by going over the process of the courts thoroughly with me. He fought to get my charges dismissed and won all three cases (two court appearances). Abe is positive, confident and he ensured I felt the same way. I'd like to say thank you to Abe for working so diligently on my cases to get them dismissed. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest! I highly recommend Abe for any charges you may be faced with. Rose C.
