If this is your 1st offense for underage drug or alcohol possession, you may have the option of participating in the Underage Drug/Alcohol Accountability Program (UDAAP).  This program may be offered to you as an alternative to the effects of having an underage violation on your record.

Upon receiving the underage citation, you have three options:

  1. You can forfeit (i.e. not attend your court date—this is why your citation may say that court is mandatory) or plead guilty, which will result in a fine and other penalties
  2. Go to court and plead not guilty and request a trial.  If you are found guilty, the court will impose a monetary fine in addition to other penalties
  3. Go to court and ask to enter the Underage Drug/Alcohol Accountability Program.  In order for the class to be an option, you MUST appear at your initial court date prior to contacting the Hope Council.  (Only 1st-time offenders are eligible for the UDAAP)


The Underage Drug/Alcohol Accountability Program requirements are:

  • Participation in 8 hours of education and pass the test at the end of class. (Additional 4 hours if for drug violation)
  • Pay all related costs:  8-hour alcohol educational course is $175 and the 12-hour course for drug violation is $265. Both courses include an assessment regarding your drinking/drug use.  If the assessment results indicate that further follow-up is needed, you will be required to make an appointment with one of Hope Council’s assessors to discuss your assessment.  This will not require an additional fee, but will take about ½ hour.  This requirement (if deemed necessary) must be completed at a later date but before your return-to-court date.  All participants should be prepared to make time for the assessment follow-up in the event that it is required for you.


At the UDAAP, participants will take part in discussions and activities.  The class is designed to educate participants about risk behaviors, consequences, and prevention.  In addition, participants will engage in reflection on their usage and/or risk behaviors and determine necessary changes to reduce risk. Please realize that the program is attempting to keep youth safe--it is not meant to be punitive.
