SECTION 23520-23521

23520.  (a) Whenever, in any county specified in subdivision (b), a
judge of a juvenile court, a juvenile hearing officer, or referee of
a juvenile court finds that a person has committed a first violation
of Section 23152 or 23153, the person shall be required to
participate in and successfully complete an alcohol or drug education
program, or both of those programs, as designated by the court.  The
expense of the person's attendance in the program shall be paid by
the person's parents or guardian so long as the person is under the
age of 18 years, and shall be paid by the person thereafter.
However, in approving the program, each county shall require the
program to provide for the payment of the fee for the program in
installments by any person who cannot afford to pay the full fee at
the commencement of the program and shall require the program to
provide for the waiver of the fee for any person who is indigent, as
determined by criteria for indigency established by the board of
supervisors.  Whenever it can be done without substantial additional
cost, each county shall require that the program be provided for
juveniles at a separate location from, or at a different time of day
than, alcohol and drug education programs for adults.
   (b) This section applies only in those counties that have one or
more alcohol or drug education programs certified by the county
alcohol program administrator and approved by the board of
supervisors.
