Youth Substance Awareness and Safety Program (YSASP)
Are you a youth that has just received a Notice of Violation to report to Diversion within 15 days for underage alcohol, cannabis, or buprenorphine?
Please fill out this form and read the confirmation page once you hit submit for next steps.
YSASP provides an alternative to the civil court process for youth (anyone under the age of 18) who violate Vermont’s underage alcohol and/or marijuana laws. YSASP helps young people understand the impact of using substances on themselves and others. The program helps lower the risk of future use, while connecting those identified as high-risk levels to professional substance use clinicians. Individuals referred to the YSASP program will complete a screening. Information gained through the process will be used to engage the youth on a brief, educational intervention. If the youth is under the age of 18, parent permission is necessary.
