WV AG Asks Legislature to Explore ‘24/7 Sobriety Program’ Substance Abuse Initiative

December 31st, 2015 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Trump and House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Shott urging them to explore the 24/7 Sobriety Program substance abuse recidivism initiative during the 2016 legislative session.
“My office continues to address the drug problem in West Virginia, but we recognize the issues facing our state are not something that we can tackle alone,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “As elected leaders serving the people of this state, we must explore ways to effectively work together to combat this public scourge.”
Attorney General Morrisey has been examining South Dakota’s 24/7 Sobriety Program and its potential benefits for the Mountain State.
South Dakota’s attorney general pioneered the project and administers it to this day. The 24/7 Sobriety Program represents a cutting edge offender-funded, court-monitored initiative that focuses on repeat DUI offenders.
