This program is available for individuals required by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles to complete an Intervention Interview. The program consists of one appointment that includes the viewing of a DVD followed by an individual appointment with an ASAP staff member to review the individual's driving record.
This is a statutorily mandated program for offenders convicted of a first or second offense DUI. In this program, a device is attached to the offender's car which prohibits it from starting unless the offender is alcohol free. The offender must blow into this device before starting the car. The equipment logs the offender's blood alcohol level during each use and detects any tampering that is made to the interlock system.
Additionally, while driving, the offender will be required to give a breath sample while the car is running. If the offender tests positive while driving, the car's horn will sound and its high beam lights will flash on and off. Any tampering with the interlock system by the offender (Class I misdemeanor) will cause the offender to be sent back to court as non-compliant. The offender can be jailed for this tampering, as well as assessed a heavy fine.
First Time Drug Offender
This is a program for first time drug offenders. Individuals participate in a 10 hour education program and/or treatment (see above).
