This paper summarizes the results of four independently conducted state evaluations of The Change Companies®' impaired driving curricula. Results across diverse states and populations reveal that The Change Companies®' curricula are associated with statistically significant reductions in recidivism among program participants. These findings were significant across varied demographic factors, such as gender, age and ethnicity. The Change Companies®' curricula were also found to be positively endorsed by both staff and program participants, which speaks to the curricula's attentiveness and responsiveness to the unique needs of states, programs and the individuals they serve.
