Many individuals, especially those dealing with psychiatric cases, find themselves involved in legal issues when their real issue is their non-compliance with medications and treatment.
Being incarcerated, even for a short period of time, often exacerbates a patient’s’ symptoms, profound impacting their mental wellbeing. The same goes for individuals facing drug-related charges. Getting punished by jail time and mandatory DUI classes is not actual treatment, and doesn’t get to the root cause of what’s going on.
We have access to court and probation-approved treatment plans, which are creative alternatives to punishment and which personalize a client’s needs and circumstances with judges, prosecutors, and probation and parole officers.
