Substance Abuse

Substance abuse treatment is often ordered as a condition of supervision by the Court or U.S. Parole Commission so you are required to participate in substance abuse treatment and support in order to alleviate symptoms from alcohol and drug abuse that contribute to further illegal activity, unstable lifestyles, poor compliance with Court supervision, and further risk to the community.   Substance abuse treatment and drug testing (urinalysis) are provided by officers or community agencies, and where needed, contract service providers.

Treatment may involve detoxification and may consist of individual, family, or group counseling in an outpatient or residential setting depending on the level of need. It also can include alternative strategies.  Additionally, our substance abuse treatment programs generally include various detection methods of testing for the use of drugs or alcohol.  Many of the service's officers help to arrange are available in local public and private service organizations (resources listed below), but often, due to a lack of the specific services available locally, or your level of need, these can be provided through Probation contracts with local programs.

There are also other resources and information to assist those working to overcome the effects of substance abuse in their lives, some are listed below;
