What is the South Carolina Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program?

More commonly known as ADSAP, the South Carolina Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program is a statewide substance abuse program which is mandatory for individuals who have been convicted of driving under the influence. The purpose of the program is to lower the number of injuries and deaths that occur each year in South Carolina as a result of alcohol or drug-related automobile wrecks by reducing the risk that an individual will drive under the influence in the future.

An individual who has been convicted of a DUI must enroll in ADSAP within 30 days of his or her conviction. Enrollment can be completed with any certified ADSAP provider in the state. An individual who does not enroll in ADSAP within the 30-day time period may be held in contempt of court. Furthermore, an individual is not eligible for reinstatement of his or her driver’s license until the ADSAP program has been completed.

  Once enrolled in an ADSAP program, an individual will be assessed to identify any factors that contributed to his or her DUI conviction. The individual will then be assigned goals to address problem areas, including education and treatment services designed to help the individual reduce his or her risk of committing another DUI offense in the future.

An individual who is participating in ADSAP and has only one DUI conviction may obtain a provisional driver’s license, which will permit driving for six months on the condition that the individual continues to participate in ADSAP. Those who do not qualify for a provisional driver’s license may be eligible for a restricted license.

ADSAP enrollment carries a $500 fee, while treatment services required by the program can cost up to $2,000. A comprehensive list of ADSAP providers can be found at http://www.daodas.state.sc.us/LocalResources.asp .
