  • Intervene by mandating drug¬≠addicted offenders to court supervised treatment as an alternative to incarceration;
  • Provide intensive case management in an effort to promote compliance with court mandates;
  • Educate the drug¬≠addicted offender about relapse, recovery, sobriety through workshops conducted with community treatment providers;
  • Provide the offender with appropriate tools needed for long¬≠term sobriety;
  • Through health education, reducing high¬≠risk behaviors and identifying and treating the health problems of high¬≠risk offenders;
  • and Address vocational, educational, or employment needs.
