Unfortunately the differences between various prosecutors and judges make it difficult to give you a good answer. Some would allow a minor violation like this to slide, others would want you to do a weekend or two in jail as punishment, others would want you to do the year. The rehabilitation program is an excellent idea, and most judges look upon actions like this very favorably.
I agree that you are doing the right thing about have a lawyer help you with this situation. Following that lawyer's instructions is excellent advice. Good luck.
It's good that you have an attorney working for you on the case. It is possible that they revoke your probation and make you serve the terms of your underlying sentence. I would recommend doing any and everything your attorney tells you. And don't do anything else to violate the terms of your probation.
