OMU - Offender Management Unit

To begin SATOP requirements, you must pre-schedule an  appointment with an OMU.  As your SATOP responsibility is fulfilled, several activities will occur:

     1.a.  OMU - Offender Management Unit:  You must pay $126 for the OMU assignment evaluation.  You must also pay a State "supplemental fee"of $249 at the OMU, required for all SATOP offenses..

     1.b.  MIP - Minor in Possession of Alcohol or drugs, Zero Tolerance, or abuse and lose; both OMU and supplemental fee will be collected.

    2.  You will meet with a Qualified Professional that has your driving record, counting ALL current and prior offenses (lifetime,) to ensure accuracy about ANY prior Alcohol or Drug offenses, and your BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) level at arrest, and fill out the SATOP forms.

     3.  You will complete a Driver Risk Inventory II (DRI - II), which is a computer scored and interpreted questionnaire regarding your lifestyle, drinking/drug using habits, attitudes, and related issues.

     4.  You will be personally interviewed by OMU Qualified Professional and assigned into a program level that meets the Missouri State service level standards.

Based upon the above screening factors, you will be assigned into ONE of the SATOP Education or Treatment Programs.  You have a right to a "second opinion" From any other SATOP OMU or a judicial review from the court.  Should you exercise this option, you will be required to pay the second OMU a $126 service fee, but no additional supplemental fee will be charged.  The referral made by the second OMU or the court will be considered the referral of record - and will be binding.

     Participants should maximize the potential offered by SATOP, view the program experience, not as some additional punishment or penalty, but rather to gain new insights into alcohol and/or drug usage behaviors that affect lifestyles, marriages, relationships, parenting, jobs, finances, health and general sense of well being.  With the participant cooperation, SATOP can be a positive, motivating experience.
