F.A.I.P. (Felony Alcohol Intervention Project)
To reduce injuries and deaths resulting from alcohol related motor vehicle crashes, the Tarrant County Felony Alcohol Intervention Program requires convicted repeat DWI offenders to undergo a judicially supervised regimen of intensive supervision and treatment.
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.

“This program is about changing their lives, not just about drunk driving. For most defendants, it is no longer the idea of ‘I can hardly wait to get off probation so I can drink’—that becomes a non-issue. They like this new way of life!” Criminal Defense Attorney Randy Bowers
