After completing the orientation screening appointment at the Drug Court Program Office (occurring typically within a week after plea), each participant will be assigned a Drug Court Case Supervisor. The Drug Court Case Supervisor will perform and or arrange a Drug and Alcohol Evaluation to be completed within the first ten weeks after admission. Once completed, the Drug and Alcohol Evaluation will be forwarded to the Drug Court Treatment Coordinator.

The Participant, along with the Treatment Coordinator will review the evaluation and appropriate substance abuse and/or mental health treatment services will be assigned. The Treatment Coordinator, in making treatment recommendations, will take into account many factors; location of treatment provider, transportation concerns, i.e., bus route, walking, family or friends transporting and the related cost just to name a few. The participant then calls the treatment provider to make an appointment for screening and when a date is confirmed, calls the Treatment Coordinator and the Drug Court Counselor as to the date and time of treatment appointment. Once the participant secures a treatment start date, and schedule of treatment routine, participant informs both the Treatment Coordinator and his/her Drug Court Case Supervisor.

The Treatment Coordinator continuously tracks the participant’s progress throughout the course of treatment and informs the Drug Court’s case review team, at the time of weekly court reviews. The Treatment Coordinator tracks the participant’s progress or lack of progress for the duration of their treatment involvement even with multiple placements.

The Treatment Coordination at the Drug Court office relies heavily on both private and public treatment agencies in securing such services for the Drug Court clientele. All local/referred to treatment providers, are licensed and utilize qualified licensed professionals to dispense treatment services.

Initial, primary treatment services, i.e., outpatient, intensive outpatient, short-term residential or halfway house services, may prove to be adequate referral resources. However, in some cases, additional extended supervision services, i.e., detox, transitional residential, long-term residential, three-quarter way house, Day Reporting Center, etc… are recommended usually to meet a need that has been identified. The primary goal of most treatment services, and or extended supervision services is to promote cognitive and behavioral ownership, accountability to change, and to promote being an individual that can live productively within the community.
