• Upon a first offense in which alcohol and/or drugs were involved, the court may refer an adolescent to the Zero Tolerance Early Intervention Program. The program is run by specially-trained prevention specialists.
  • The program makes written agreements with the first-time offender. Breaking the rules (re-offending) will cause the adolescent to be discharged from the program and the court will be notified of the offender's failure to follow the rules and guidelines of the program.
  • The goal of the program is to interrupt the progression a teen might otherwise follow into repeated and more serious drug and alcohol offenses.
