Joint national action against drunk and drugged drivers according to the Skellefte Model : a quantitative study of the process (English)
In 2003, the Swedish Road Administration initiated a project entitled The Joint National Action against Drunk and Drugged Drivers according to the Skellefte Model The aim of the project was to spread an initiative that began in Skellefteå to the rest of Sweden. According to the Skellefte Model, anyone taken into custody for drunk driving is quickly offered help for any alcohol or drug problems they might have. The way it works is that, at the time of the arrest, the police make an offer of an interview with social services or the addiction treatment system. If the individual agrees, the interview is conducted, and treatment is then offered if it is deemed necessary. The model is based on a voluntary approach, and the individual can decline further contact at any time. For each case, a form is created that follows the person. The form provides background information such as age and gender, as well as information as to whether the suspect accepted or refused the offer, and whether he or she is participating in the interview and treatment process. The results from a study based on an analysis of these forms are presented in this report. Forms from cases in which the suspects have refused contact with social services or the addiction treatment system are retained solely by the police. We have consequently collected forms from both the police and social services/addiction treatment systems. Forms were collected between 1 January 2008 and 30 June 2008. The police send in 2,132 forms from 16 counties. Social services and addiction treatment systems send in 845 forms from 17 counties. In some cases social services and the addiction treatment system had come into contact with the suspected drunk driver by some means other than the police form. For instance, individuals who refuse the police offer may change their mind and initiate such contact themselves. A special form, prepared by VTI, has been used for such cases.
