Drug and alcohol education is viewed by the Lycoming County Judicial Court System as an important element in the prevention and intervention of chemical use and abuse. Through the Underage Drinking Program, the Commission educates youth about the negative consequences of drug and alcohol use. This program is designed to offer drug and alcohol education as a diversion for youth charged with underage drinking or related offenses. It is a voluntary program that allows the youth charged to access education relevant to their risk-taking behaviors. The benefits of the program include no fine and no loss of license. Upon successful completion of the program, the defendant’s citation is dismissed.
