    FAIP Overview

    FAIP (Felony Alcohol Intervention Program) Overview

    To capitalize on the trauma and consequences of an arrest by early intervention in the alcoholic's course of abuse.

    The Tarrant County Felony Alcohol Intervention Program (FAIP) is a post adjudication program for the high-risk repeat DWI offender.

    FAIP is designed to coordinate alcohol abuse intervention with judicial oversight, enhanced supervision and individual accountability. FAIP provides consistent and lengthy structure allowing the offender to benefit from the treatment experience.

    FAIP is the best vehicle within the criminal justice system for expediting the time between arrest for DWI and entry into treatment. It is designed to divert offenders out of the traditional criminal justice process and into appropriate rehabilitative alternatives.
