The Rappahannock Area Alcohol Safety Action Program (RAASAP) services the following jurisdictions:  Fredericksburg City, the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford. The Court may order VASAP supervision for the following offenses DUI, alcohol related reckless driving, probation before judgment, driving after consumption, misdemeanor drug offenses, alcohol related domestic relations convictions, alcohol possession, pre-trial assessment and probation and habitual/DUI 3rd offenders restored to restricted driving privilege. 

 

Each offender referred to the Rappahannock Area ASAP for supervision is assessed, placed into an intervention program specific to their level of substance abuse and monitored throughout participation.  If at anytime during the assigned probation monitoring an offender experiences problems with alcohol/drug abuse, reassessment and intervention for the problem is initiated for appropriate services.         

 

Completing ASAP is mandatory for all DUI offenses under Virginia State Code 18.2-271.1.  Referral for entry into ASAP is court ordered after an individual has been convicted of a DUI.  ASAP referral allows the client to lead a normal life while fulfilling the terms of probation, which are closely monitored by a case manager.
