Can VASAP make me go to therapy?
Yes. If you’re convicted of Virginia DUI, the law says that you have to go to VASAP. And unfortunately you have to pretty much do what they say. The statute (18.2-271.1) actually says that you have to “…enter into and successfully complete an alcohol safety action program…”.
For many first offense cases, they won’t require therapy. You’d just do education classes. But if you’re convicted of a high blood alcohol offense or a second offense, you may be required to attend therapy classes.
