This paper provides a description of the DWI Education Program and DWI Intervention Program administered by the Hays County Adult Probation Programs Department. A case study is conducted to determine whether these programs impact DWI probationers' attitudes and behaviors after successful completion. An evaluation and assessment of these programs proceeds in three different phases. First, the DWI Education Program is evaluated and compared to the ideal characteristics found in the literature. Second, the DWI Education Program's pre-test/post-test system is evaluated to determine its effectiveness in terms of educating DWI probationers who successfully completed the program. Finally, the DWI Intervention Program is evaluated to determine whether it has an impact on the recidivism rate for DWI probationers who successfully completed the program.
