Frequently Asked Questions : What Happens at an IDRC?

DUI Conviction in New Jersey - What Happens Next?

If you have been charged with a DUI in New Jersey, please read the DUI Conviction Data Sheet. It describes the process, which includes you being scheduled to attend an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center.


Does the State of New Jersey publish IDRC Listings?

For the most accurate and up to date NJ IDRC listings, visit IDRCLocations.org.

The State of New Jersey frequently publishes unreliable or out of date information. For example, the current "IDRC Client Call Center Hotline" published on the State of New Jersey web page about the IDRC program (published on an outdated DMHAS page as well as a new "integrated health" page), has never been answered when we called during business hours (609-815-3100). It transfers call to a message "the machine has not been set up".

We note the State of NJ has "moved" the department responsible for managing DUI programs several times, each time creating a new web URL yet often leaving the old, outdated published documents still published! This is especially true of IDRC center listings. That is why we publish and maintain this web site!


How do I get Scheduled for IDRC?

Currently (2021) the New Jersey Intoxicated Drivers Program (IDP) in Trenton is responsible for scheduling your initial visit to an IDRC location that is assigned according to your county of residency. You do not schedule yourself.

If you need to reschedule, there is a dedicated "reschedule desk" with very strict rules (law,actually) regarding who may be able to reschedule and under what conditions. The IDRC Reschedule Desk phone number is 973-957-0805 x118.


Can I bring my Cell Phone?

No electronic devices are permitted, so no.


What are the IDRC Class scheduled hours?

The hours of IDRC classes vary by county. Check your schedule notice, or see the county listings on this page for your county IDRC contact information. There are usually 2 full days of clss, for a total of 12 mandated hours of training. There are also 3 "48 hour IDRC Classes" listed on this web page.


Should I bring food?

Check your schedulign docs or your local IDRC center. The law prohibits leaving until the clss is finished... for ANY reason, which wold include getting food.


What if I need help with my drinking?

The first step of rehab for an alcohol use disorder is a professional medical detox from alcohol. After that, substance abuse treatment involves rehab, or ongoing outpatient treatment for addiction and co-occurring behavioral health issues associated with substance abuse.


What happens at the idrc?

You will pay the IDRC program fee and complete a questionnaire. You will attend a series of educational sessions and discussions. You will meet with a counselor for a personal screening interview.


What does the education program do?

The education program, which is part of the 12- and 48- hour IDRC, contains information on social and problem drinking, stages of alcoholism, family and other relationships, alcohol and drugs and their effects on driving ability, and the New Jersey Intoxicated Driving Law.


What if i don't participate?

If you fail to appear at the IDRC or do not satisfactorily complete a prescribed treatment or self-help program or pay the fees on time, your license will be suspended indefinitely untill IDP/IDRC requirements are satsified. You may also be jailed two days due to program noncompliance.


What if I am not ready yet?

You cannot attend an IDRC program in New Jersey if you are intoxicated or actively using drugs or alcohol. Participants will be tested, and there may be serious consequences.

If you need help with alcohol or drug use, we recommend you contact a professional treatment center such as Sunrise Detox (inpatient medical detox in Cherry Hill, Toms River, and Morris County) or The Counseling Center (offering outpatient substance abuse treatment and IOP programs in Fair Lawn, Clark, Freehold, and Toms River.


Are there any 48 hour "lock in" IDRC Programs?

There are three 48 hour "lock-in" IDRC programs offered in New Jersey. One 48 hour IDRC for North Jersey, one for Central Jersey, and one serving South Jersey. Each has restrictions and rules,so please check the listings.
