1. Requirements for Successfully Completing Back on Track
I understand that I must meet the following requirements to successfully complete Back on Track:
1. If you are not sure you can meet this condition, you should complete substance abuse treatment before you register for Back on Track. Contact ConnexOntario at 1-800-565-8603 for help in locating treatment programs in your area.
- I must not use alcohol (including dealcoholized beverages) or drugs within 24 hours of or on any day that I participate in the program.1 I may take medication prescribed by a physician provided it does not impair my ability to participate in the program.2
2. If you are unsure if you can meet this condition, you should consult a doctor before registering.
- I must attend all sessions as scheduled for me and arrive on time for each session.
- I must give 24 hours notice that I am unable to attend by leaving a message directly with the service provider. The only acceptable reasons for missing a session without giving 24 hours notice are serious illness, a death in my immediate family, or severe weather. In case of an emergency I may submit a document (e.g., a doctor’s note, death certificate, or severe local weather report - must be date/time specific) to confirm the reason for my absence. If accepted, I will be required to reschedule the missed component and complete all assignments.
- I must provide accurate information about myself and my remedial requirements.
- I must participate fully in the program activities and demonstrate that I have learned about separating my drinking from my driving.
- I must treat the program staff and other participants with respect. Verbal or physical abuse will not be tolerated.
If I do not meet the program requirements for any reason, I have failed the program. I may re-register for the program again but I must repay the program fee in full. In addition, if any accommodation I require results in extra program costs, I will be responsible for paying these before re-registering. I will be required to retake any scheduled or completed components again and complete all parts of the program to meet the Ministry of Transportation, Ontario (MTO) remedial requirement.
