Delaware’s state Senate has approved a bill that would allow drunk drivers who plead guilty to their charges to enter an intensive alcohol treatment program to help them get their driver’s license back.

The program would be limited to 50 participants at any one time.  Participants will have ignition interlock devices installed on their cars, strict supervision, and additional aids to help reduce dependence on alcohol.

The program could last up to nine months for the participants and those who complete the program could have their jail time suspended and licenses reinstated.

The bill goes to the House for approval.
