Our mission is not to put a bandage on the felony DWI crisis or to continue with the “give them a
conviction and lock them up” approach that has continually failed our society. Our process gets to the root
of why repeat DWI offenses occur in the first place, starting with scientific testing to identify whether a
genetic neurobiological disorder could be at play. We then provide tailored and closely monitored therapy to
put an end to the destruction of incarceration.
Prior to acceptance into our program, drug and alcohol testing takes place followed by GARS, or Genetic
Addiction Risk Score lab testing. GARS is the primary diagnostic instrument used in determining if the
neurobiological disorder of “reward deficiency syndrome” exists within a repeat felony DWI
Reward deficiency syndrome occurs when dysfunction exists in a person’s dopamine receptors, leading the brain to desperately search for alternate sources of dopamine. As is documented by the National Institute of Health, a lack of D2 dopamine receptors, or poor receptor function, causes individuals to have a high risk for multiple addictive, impulsive, and compulsive behavioral propensities, which include severe alcohol/substance use disorder.
Participants found to have reward deficiency syndrome will be matched with experts having extensive
knowledge of substance use disorder in the legal (when the patient doesn’t have counsel), judicial, and
medical treatment fields. While we work with these individuals for the development of alternative sentencing
options and conditions of probation, our ultimate goal is the full remission of issues causing
Individuals will undergo a long-term evidence-based treatment plan specific to their challenges and needs determined from our evaluation. We maintain control of our client’s treatment, meaning nothing is “farmed out.” Treatment issues will be rendered moot by PTM (Precision Recovery, Precision Addiction Medicine, and TCSMAS).
