Contract Treatment Facilities and Programs for Defendants:

 

The second Section on this page has residential contract services available by Court Order for offenders on probation.  Programs in this section are not available for the general public.

 

 

Contract Residential Services


When an offender needs treatment for chemical dependency and/or mental health issues, subjects are referred to specialized residential facilities where such services can be obtained. These placements are made with department money or with grant money. This is limited to funds available.

 

 

Court Residential Treatment Services


The purpose of these facilities is to focus on a client's recovery from drug or alcohol addiction then help him/her secure employment and become self-supporting. The centers attempt to help clients   restructure their thinking while teaching responsible living. These are not secure facilities; failure  to report as instructed or Unauthorized Absence from a court residential treatment center is a state jail felony offense.

 

 

Restitution Centers


These facilities are very limited in number but do provide residential services combined with off-site work pursuits. Once employed, the offender pays room and board to the facility. Some of  those earnings go back to the court and/or probation office to clear debts owed and to support their families. The focus of these centers is on living skills and self-support aimed at independent living through self-support.

 

 

Intermediate Sanction Facilities


These are generally barracks-type living facilities for subjects who have violated their conditions of probation. Clients stay in for periods of 90 days to 24 months to establish a regular work pattern involving five day per week (or more) community service. Once the  pattern is established and the client has demonstrated cooperation with the program's elements, they are released to return to intensive probation where they will be more closely monitored than on standard supervision levels.  Additionally, many ISF’s offer a variety of cognitive, supportive, and educational type programs.

 

 

Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facilities - SAFPF


These facilities are operated behind prison walls. The program lasts approximately six months. While incarcerated here, clients attend classes, group counseling and group processing. The program is aimed at getting clients to realize how significant chemicals are in their lives and what can be done to accept responsibility and change their behavior. This is the most intense chemical dependency treatment program available in the world of corrections.

 

Once the lock-up portion of the program has been completed (six months), the client goes to a half-way house or transitional treatment center. During this phase, the probationer must get a job and begin to get used to the increasing hours of free time in the community. All of this will be followed by six to nine months of aftercare counseling. This counseling helps clients deal with  relapse prevention issues and other problems that are likely to arise with this high-risk population once they return to the community. A Special (Intensive) Probation Officer who is familiar with the regimen of these treatment facilities supervises the year of aftercare counseling.

 

 

Alcoholic / Narcotic Anonymous Meeting Information:

 

Many times a Probation Officer and/or Judge may require probationers to attend support meetings.  This requirement can be a Court order, a requirement of a Court ordered class, a request from your probation officer, or as a result of a violation of probation.  If you have never attended a meeting, this request may come with many questions.  Here you can find information on how to locate area meetings, what to do when you attend, and what AA/NA is all about. 

 

Local AA, NA, MA, CA, and Al-Anon Meetings can be found posted in area news papers in the classifieds, listed in area phone books, and online.  Below are a few links to search for area meetings.  Meetings times change from time to time to meet the needs of the group and its members.  Please call a local meeting group or check online when searching for a meeting.
