TAAP or the Teen Alcohol Awareness Program
TAAP is designed for:
- First-time offenders underaged who have been charged with a crime involving alcohol.
- Adolescents that have been caught drinking or in possession of alcohol.
- Adolescents who are struggling with the decision to begin using or continue using alcohol.

How is TAAP Administered?

Referrals to TAAP May Come From:
