  • Encouraging participants to maintain an alcohol and drug free lifestyle by administering frequent random drug and alcohol testing.

  • Providing immediate interventions (sanctions/incentives) to address high-risk behaviors and promote accountability by holding them responsible for their actions.

  • Providing intensive supervision and case management to support participants in reaching their individual goals that will help maintain a positive, sober lifestyle.

  • Forming community partnerships to assist participants with vocational, educational, employment, health care, housing and other identified needs.
