Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program (VASAP):

There are 24 local alcohol safety action programs that make up VASAP. A Commission, comprised of 12 members with a broad range of knowledge and experience, formulates and maintain standards to be observed by local ASAPs, periodically evaluating them to ensure they are servicing their communities in an effective, efficient manner.

VASAP provides a network of probationary, administrative, case management, and client services that is readily adaptable and expandable to meet local and state needs. It works with local employee assistance programs in combating the problems of substance abuse, provides funds for local law enforcement training and assistance in grant funding requests, and offers attorneys and judges knowledge and a wider variety of intervention programs to dispose of DUI/DUID cases in a manner appropriate to both community and offender needs.

VASAP is the only statewide court-related DUI/DUID intervention program in the nation, diverting thousands of offenders annually from costly incarceration in local jails, thus realizing substantial savings to the commonwealth. Offenders placed on probation by the court are given a restricted license and ordered to report to their local ASAP within 15 days. There, a case manager classifies the offender to determine the appropriate education and/or treatment services. The offender pays a fee determined by program assignment. The case manager supervises each case to ensure that probation requirements are fulfilled.

VASAP is completely funded by offender fees and government grants. Many studies on a national basis have found that the ASAP program is extremely cost-effective as well as extremely successful.

BEWARE: Completing an alcohol program may not satisfy the DMV. That is just one reason why it is critical that you consult with a lawyer in your area that concentrates on DUI / DWI defense.
