As a leader in the education and counseling fields, The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) created the TCNJ Clinic which is a community based clinic providing low cost counseling and therapy services to individuals, couples and families. Additionally, the Clinic provides employee assistance services to its employees and other organizations throughout Mercer County. TCNJ has been selected to operate the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC) for Mercer County. The TCNJ Clinic provides IDRC services to Mercer County residents and other individuals who have been convicted of operating a motor vehicle or boat under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Individuals who have been found guilty of driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol are mandated to attend a 12 hour education program. This program has two purposes to make our highways and waterways safer by educating drivers and boat operators about alcohol and drugs and their relation to motor vehicle and boat safety. The program also identifies those individuals who need further evaluation and treatment for an alcohol or drug problem.
