SATOP is the State of Missouri, Department of Mental Health, Division of Behavioral Health program that is required for individuals who receive a DWI/DUI offense.  Missouri law requires all persons arrested for an alcohol or drug-related traffic offense to complete an assessment screening followed by completion of either an education course or a treatment program as prescribed.  The fees for the SATOP are set by State Statute; the SATOP Evaluation Cost is $375.00 per person.  The result of this evaluation determines the appropriate level of placement for each individual.  The Safety Council is a State Certified Offender Management Unit (OMU) and provides the assessment screening process. Our assessments times vary to meet your schedule.  

We also provide the education class/service described below:


  • Adolescent Diversion Education Program (ADEP): A 10-hour education course for offenders who may have received a Zero Tolerance, Abuse and Lose, or a Minor in Possession offense.  If there is no driver’s license involvement, the offender may be assigned directly to an education program.  The fee for the ADEP is $200.

  • Substance Use Evaluation:  A professional will provide an assessment of drug and alcohol use and make a recommendation based on the individual's circumstances. This may be court-ordered or employer-ordered. The fee for the evaluation is $200.00.
