Substance Abuse Traffic Offenders Program

The SATOP program is a state certified program designed for those individuals who have been ticketed or arrested for a substance related traffic offense. Whether DWI, DUI, Chemical Refusal or Minor in Possession, SATOP is required for an individual with a Missouri license to regain their driving privileges.

SATOP is a multi-step process with each portion defined by State requirements. The prices are also set by the state and cannot be changed by the provider.

Offender Management Units are responsible for screening individuals into the various levels of SATOP. Each OMU is registered with the State of Missouri, and offers at least the 10 hour Offender Education Program. NDS, as an OMU, provides screenings in Kansas City, Liberty, Richmond, Excelsior Springs and soon in our newest Platte County Office.
