If you don't complete therapy the way they want it? I know I'm supposed to be in therapy and I am,I just don't know if at the end of probation they want it to be completed or continued or both. I asked and was told both when you complete therapy to send proof as well as if you're continuing your treatment that's fine by probation. My therapist says some therapy never ends but seemed to talk like she would send over what I did complete when the time came around and said it would satisfy completion for them. I'm just really worried and confused. I really want to complete the program right and not be back to square oneNon d.u.i. ard
Generally if therapy/counseling is required to be "completed" under probation, it only means you have to show that you are compliant with continued and regular attendance. A letter from your therapist will generally satisfy your probation officer and therefore, this condition of your probation contract.

You could possibly face jail time. This isn't about you. You've agree to do this stuff. Just get it done and move on with life.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
I am not licensed in PA, so out of respect to any experienced attorney licensed in PA answering your question, I would direct you to that answer first. However, who is "they?" Your probation officer or the judge?
In Pennsylvania, when it comes to satisfying the terms of your ARD, your probation officer is your number 1 go-to. It is always best to have an open and continuing dialogue with your PO to avoid any problems before they become problems. Speak to your PO and ask what (s)he wants you to have done and follow those instructions. It will be your PO who has a large part in deciding whether your ARD is complete and whether to terminate your ARD.
