Meet our instructors!
 
Our highly trained instructors have established programs that meet the needs necessary to protect schools and businesses from liability issues.  This is one of the few in the nation that actually uses Drug Recognition Experts (DRE) as the facilitators.
 
A DRE is an officer who has been specially trained to conduct an examination on a person to determine if the person is impaired and, if so, whether the impairment is caused by drug use or by a medical condition.
 
This examination is conducted in a controlled environment utilizing a Standardized and Systematic 12 Step Process. The Drug Evaluation and Classification Program utilize a format that has seven categories of drugs. These categories are determined based on the pharmacodynamics, medically known responses of drug use on human physiology, of that particular drug category.
 
Once the examination is completed the DRE is able to determine which drug category or categories the person has used. Drug Recognition Experts can be used in a variety of ways, from Driving While under the Influence Enforcement to internal investigations.
 
We feel strongly that the minimum is not sufficient and may result in misdiagnosis of a problem. There is a fine line between negligent retention and dismissal without cause. We have attempted to address all of these issues and will provide you the latest information and expertise in the field of Drug Recognition.
