Adolescent Diversion Education Program
If you are under the age of 21 in Missouri, and have been charged with alcohol or drug-related offenses such as minor in possession or abuse and lose, you could be required to attend an Adolescent Diversion Education Program (ADEP).
This class is reserved for minor in possession charges where you were not operating a vehicle. If your minor in possession charge involved a vehicle you will have to get an Offender Management Unit screening and attend a SATOP (substance abuse traffic offender program) class the same as over-21 drivers.
The adolescent diversion education program is a 10-hour course reserved for first-time offenders not operating a vehicle.
Even if it is your first alcohol or drug offense and you were not operating a vehicle, you may also be ineligible for this program if you have a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) of 0.18 or greater when you received the offense.
The cost of the program is $100.00.
