Who We Are

The Community Alcohol Information Program, CAIP, is a private non-profit agency that provides alcohol and other drug education, assessment, and evaluation services primarily for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI) offenders. Our main office is in Boscawen, New Hampshire, with additional locations in Nashua, Laconia and Keene. 

 

Although empowered by New Hampshire statute (RSA 265-A) and regulated by the New Hampshire Code of Administrative Rules (He-A 500), the Community Alcohol Information Program is not a state agency, but is a private, non-profit [501(c)(3)] corporation.  The Community Alcohol Information Program has been approved by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services as a provider agency of Impaired Driver Care Management Program (IDCMP), Impaired Driver Education Program (IDEP) and Weekend Impaired Driver Education Program (WIDEP) services.

 

Our Mission Statement

 

The Community Alcohol Information Program, founded in 1977, is committed to making a positive impact upon the lives of people with alcohol and substance abuse problems in an ethical, respectful and supportive environment. Through prevention, education and treatment services, and advocacy, the Community Alcohol Information Program is dedicated to assisting and supporting individuals referred through judicial and community systems to achieve restoration of productive and fruitful lives.

Our Philosophy

We at CAIP believe that every client of our agency deserves to be treated with respect and dignity and are entitled to courteous, confidential, and professional care and consideration.  We understand that this can be a stressful time in the lives of persons convicted of DUI/DWI, as people are all the sudden finding themselves in a situation that can be confusing, overwhelming, and ultimately can have a major impact on their lives, employment and family relationships.  We pledge to work with you as a partner, supporting you in moving you forward towards the ultimate goal of getting your license restored as quickly as possible.

As a client you have certain rights and responsibilities which can be found under the “Client Bill of Rights” section.  Our goal is to keep you always informed what you need to do to keep moving forward towards license restoration and to give you all information in writing for your future reference.  Understanding that we must follow established laws and rules, clients can be assured that we will support you in any way which we are able to help you through the process involved in completing an Impaired Driver Care Management Program.  

 

We encourage our clients to ask questions, communicate openly with our staff members, and to not hesitate to let us know about any problems or concerns you have about the program, the IDCMP process, or working with any outside agencies or program, including treatment agencies or state programs or departments as you complete the IDCMP and seek restoration of your driving privilege.
