About EIP Michigan
Education Intervention Programs has been providing education programs since 1969. We started as a state funded “pilot project” in the Oakland County Health Department that addressed alcohol impaired drivers. Over time, we have added an array of educational programs, including drug education, youth alcohol education, misdemeanor programs, and a basic driver improvement course. We also moved from the public to the private setting. Throughout the years, our agency’s mission has been to offer quality educational experiences for participants who have been directed to our sessions by legal system personnel.
All teaching staff possesses at least a Master’s degree in a counseling or education discipline, and are encouraged and supported in the pursuit of continuing education. In addition to being well versed in the subject presented, facilitators must demonstrate several years of relevant experience in dealing with offenders in group settings before joining EIP. This sort of background enables our group leaders to recognize and respond appropriately to the variety of emotions and issues that invariably arise, and to overcome the range of psychological barriers present in a group where attendance is mandatory.
Participants are usually referred via court personnel. During most of our existence, the majority of courts in and around Oakland County have steadily referred to one or more of our programs. Participants may attend under a variety of circumstances, such as probation requirements, pre-trial diversion, license restoration, plea agreements, employment requirements, etc. They are able to schedule by selecting from a variety of locations (18 in all).
