What are the 18 month treatment program alcohol Classes?

The 18-Month Treatment Program is standardized by law in California.  If you have a DUI with a prior, you must attend this program to get your license back with the DMV, and the judge must sentence you to this program. Under California’s Senate Bill 38 (SB38), the class must be spread out over eighteen months, two hours per class once per week.

The program is split into two phases, one 12 months long, and the other is six months long.  Those alcohol program phases have the following instruction:

Phase One: The First Twelve Months

The first 12 months of the multiple offender alcohol program consists of the following sessions and requirements:

  • You must attend 26 Group Sessions, which are 2 hours each, every other week. (Note that some alcohol classes want you to start with them every week, tapering to every other week).
  • You must attend a total of 26 fifteen minute (minimum) Face to Face Interviews or Meetings with a case manager, one every other week.
  • You must attend a total of 6 – two hour Alcohol Education Classes.
  • You must attend 52 Self-Help Meetings (AA classes, NA classes, or equivalent).
  • Most programs will have built in Absences Allowed up to a maximum of 10.


  • Phase Two: The Final Six Months (The “Reentry Phase”

    • You must attend 6 Re-entry Group Sessions, which are 1 hour in length each.

Can I do the 18-Month Treatment Program online?

Note that online classes are not allowed by the court in general (but may be in extreme circumstances, such as where someone is out of the state or country and may not attend in person classes regularly).  The California DMV does not accept anything but in person classes that took place in California.

How much does the 18-Month Treatment Program cost?

The fees will vary by the class provider.  Most charge you weekly.  The weekly cost normally ranges between $25.00 – $35.00/week, so budget for approximately $1500 total, more or less.  Check with the program you would like to attend first to see how much they charge.
