DWI Repeat Offender

Drug Offender Program

Our History

A&A Drug and Alcohol Education was started on January 1, 1996 by Andrew Samarripa and Amelia Samarripa, thus the name A&A was created. The company had a modest beginning, opening our doors in 1996 by offering the Alcohol Education Program for Minors. Building on the success of that program, the Texas Drug Offender Education Program soon followed.
