The Back on Track program is a provincially mandated program for convicted impaired drivers and for drivers charged with two or more provincial alcohol and/or drug-related suspensions. The program requires all participants pay a registration fee to the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto in full before they can start the program.

Goals & Objectives
Completion of the Back on Track program is required by the Highway Traffic Act for convicted impaired drivers and administrative suspension drivers.
Is This Program For Me?
The Highway Traffic Act requires convicted impaired drivers and administrative suspension drivers (with more than one suspension) to successfully complete Back on Track, Ontario’s Remedial Measures Program for Impaired Drivers. Further penalties may apply if the program is not completed within the specified timelines.
To pass the program, an individual must meet the following requirements:
- Do not use alcohol (including dealcoholized beverages) or drugs within 24 hours of or on any day that you participate in the program. You may take medication prescribed by a
physician provided it does not impair your ability to participate in the program.
- Attend all scheduled sessions, and arrive on time for each session.
- Give 24 hours notice that you are 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 your immediate family or severe weather. In case of an emergency you must submit a date specific document (e.g., a doctor’s note) to confirm the reason for your absence. If accepted, you will be required to reschedule the missed component and complete all assignments.
- Participate fully in the program activities and demonstrate that you have learned – about separating your drinking and other drug use from your driving.
- Treat the program staff and other participants with respect.
- Ability to join virtual and/or in person workshops at 200 Queens Ave, London ON
