Massachusetts Impaired Driving Program

The Massachusetts Impaired Driving (MID) Program serves clients charged with a first or second offense OUI

The Massachusetts Impaired Driving (MID) Program at SSTAR serves individuals charged with first and second offender OUI violations in Massachusetts. We also handle court-ordered evaluations for higher levels of care, known as 24Q evaluations.

Section 24D of Chapter 90 of the Massachusetts General Laws provides guidance for how these cases are adjudicated and referred out for treatment.

Our first offender program is an outpatient substance use disorder service, which runs for 16 weeks, with each class running for two-hours. Upon completion of all program requirements, client have an exit interview and receive a certificate of completion. Referrals are made for clients interested in future treatment and support. This program is not covered by insurance and the client must pay out of pocket or provide a court waiver signed by a judge. Current cost: $910.96.

Our second offender program is an outpatient substance use disorder service, which runs for 12-months, and may include a combination of individual and/or group counseling. Your intake clinician will make the most appropriate treatment recommendation based on your assessment. This program is covered by insurance. Client is responsible for all co-pays and deductibles. Your insurance must be verified before your intake will be scheduled.

  • Sstar helped me save my life 7 plus years ago. Pretty sure it’s the only detox that you can still smoke cigarettes at. Which was a plus when I detoxed. The staff are amazing, and care about you and want to see you succeed. When the pandemic hit, and IOP and groups had to close, Sstar acted fast to set up programs to still be able to help people. I utilize the groups they use on Zoom, and they have helped me, but I can’t wait til they can be in person again! They have helped me with mental health, addiction, everyday issues, as well as when I’m sick. I have made friendships over the years, and Sstar has its own little community of support. It’s worth it! They are everyday life savers, that deserve more recognition then what they get! Forever grateful for all the support from my army at Sstar! 🙏🏼💜
