ACCORD is a California-licensed program for individuals arrested for or convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. Referrals to ACCORD come from San Diego County Courts, San Diego County Probation Office, or the California Department of Motor Vehicles. ACCORD clients attend classes focused on education about the effects of substance abuse and participate in individual counseling sessions. They are able to discuss any alcohol or drug related problems or concerns with their counselor in a safe, confidential environment. Community self-help meeting attendance (such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous) is also a requirement.  

ACCORD focuses on the whole person, addressing the bio-psycho-social needs of clients. A primary objective for counselors is to ensure that clients are connected to relevant community services, including more intensive substance use disorder treatment if needed.

One of ECS ACCORD’s marks of success is that the comments on the exit surveys for this mandated program, which results in clients typically being resentful about participation, are overwhelmingly positive. Approximately 95% of clients state that their experience at ACCORD has been helpful and has positively impacted their lives. Examples of comments from clients are as follows:

Enrolled participants are required to pay all program costs.
