Missouri Substance Abuse Traffic Offenders Program (SATOP)
The Department of Mental Health, Division of Behavioral Health, certifies agencies to provide services to individuals who have had an alcohol- or drug-related traffic offense. SATOP serves more than 30,000 DWI offenders annually who are referred as a result of an administrative suspension or revocation of their driver licenses, court order, condition of probation, or plea bargain. SATOP is, by law, a required element in driver license reinstatement by the Department of Revenue.
Step 1: Offender Management Unit (OMU)
All SATOP consumers enter the system via an OMU. Consumers receive an assessment screening where a review of their driver record, breath alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of their arrest, computer-interpreted assessment, and an interview with a SATOP Qualified Professional is conducted. Based upon the information gathered during the assessment screening, a referral is made to one of several types of SATOP service levels.
The OMU assessment is available at Phoenix Programs, Inc. Contact us today at (573) 875-8880 to set up an appointment for an OMU assessment to enter the SATOP system.

The OMU will refer individuals to one of the several types of SATOP levels as noted below. An * indicates that the level of service is available at Phoenix Programs, Inc.
