The Rappahannock Area ASAP provides the Intervention Interview, which is required by the Virginia DMV when a driver incurs two Driving on Suspended convictions for failure to pay fines, on their driving record within a ten year period of time. The intervention educates the offender about the consequences of further charges and how to address the behaviors that have resulted in the offenses.
Habitual Offender Evaluations
The Virginia Code 46.2-360 directs the local ASAP to complete a Habitual Offender Evaluation for Court review when a habitual offender petitions for restoration of 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.

RAASAP and the Fredericksburg General District Court have come together to initiate the first DUI Court program in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Fredericksburg DUI Court is modeled after the “Drug Court” concept coordinating substance abuse intervention with direct judicial support imposing immediate sanctions for probationer’s behavior throughout probation. RAASAP has provided the operations manual, substance abuse assessment, coordination of intervention services and case management services for operations of the DUI Court. The first DUI Court referrals began 5/1/99 from Fredericksburg General District Court. The DUI Court expanded 7/01, to incorporate referrals from Spotsylvania General District Court. The DUI Court expanded again in 7/05 to include Stafford General District Court.
