Legal Question in Criminal Law in Virginia

I was charged with 18.2-250.1 for the second time in NN. I previously completed the first offenders program. I'm a college student and want to avoid this conviction anyway possible. I'm prepared to hire a lawyer is there anyway I can repeat a supervised program? or find another approved program? what are my options?
