Creating a profile for impaired drivers is no easy task.

The province of Saskatchewan requires all people convicted of at least two instances of impaired driving to attend the Saskatchewan Impaired Driver Treament Centre for the last three weeks of their incarceration. The goal of the treatment centre is to help to keep them from repeating their decision to drive while impaired. They treat between 400-500 people a year.

The centre collects statistics on the attendees and there seems to only be two common factors. They are human, and they choose to drive while impaired. According to Michele Ketzmerick the director of the Centre, "Every age group, every education level" is represented.

The centre provideds one-on-one counselling and group sessions to the attendees to help them deal with the consequesnces of their actions (some have killed people while driving impaired) and to help them to understand that driving drunk is inherenly dangerous.

According to Ms. Ketzmerick " You hear all kinds of reasoning that people give... and they don't think it's going to happen to them".
