Program clinicians are well versed in establishing a therapeutic team with the referral agency and maintaining open communication with any probation officer, other supervisory authority or referral source. Our main goal is to provide treatment to reduce recidivism by indentifying the relational dynamics between the existing substance abuse or mental health symptoms and the continued involvement with the criminal justice system.
