Get a Ride. Not a DUI. You can be arrested for driving under the influence of anything that impairs your ability to drive.

Through the recent Office of Traffic Safety Grant (OTS), Ventura County Behavioral Health (VCBH) focused its collaborative strengths and media efforts on educating drivers and the community on the impairing dangers of combining alcohol with drugs. The grant elevated community-based prevention work during a time that the lines between legal and illegal substance use have blurred.
