Criminal Justice System
Patients who come to us from the court systems – Probation and Parole Officers, lawyers, drug diversion courts – are in every bit as much need as anyone else we treat. This is often a last chance for them to get their issues resolved. With years of treating this distinct and often disenfranchised group, we’ve gained a special understanding and expertise in how to best serve individuals whose mental illness and addiction have contributed to their becoming involved with the criminal justice system.
Our recommendation to those working for the Justice System is to visit the OUTREACH section. The DAPA© Outreach Unit has an unequalled experience in crisis and stabilization. Our OUTREACH TEAM responds promptly to calls from the court system personnel, can perform a telephone evaluation, and then – depending on the person’s needs – they get the patient into the appropriate DAPA© program.
