Criminal Justice

Sonoma County Family Law Court

We offer affordable private-pay rates for our criminal justice related services. In some cases, government agencies, the court, or Insurance/Medi-Cal may pay for services. Center Point DAAC offers a range of services from Individualized Outpatient, Intensive Outpatient, to Medication-Assisted Treatment. When Center Point DAAC reopens our residential and detox program we will offer the complete continuum of care for anyone struggling with substance abuse.

Criminal recidivism, or the tendency of individuals to reoffend after being convicted, is a complex issue with multifaceted causes. One significant factor contributing to recidivism is substance abuse and addiction. However, when individuals receive effective drug and alcohol treatment, it can have a profound positive impact on reducing recidivism rates.

Center Point DAAC currently receives referrals from and offers treatment for individuals involved with:

Criminal Court: DUI's, DWI's, disorderly conduct, and drunk in public, are just some of the crimes individuals are referred to our services for when they need to address an underlying substance abuse problem. More severe criminal cases involve assault and domestic violence charges. Individuals may seek treatment prior to conviction which can result in less significant penalties at the time of sentencing.

Parole & Probation: California State Parole and many County Probation Departments refer clients to Center Point DAAC for treatment and monitoring. 

Drug Court: A minimum nine-month program based on intensive outpatient and residential community treatment services and frequent court supervision designed to support voluntary, positive behavioral change. The Drug Court Program provides the opportunity to form a unique partnership between the criminal justice system, the drug treatment community, and the offender.

Drug Dependency Court: The Sonoma County Dependency Drug Court is a court-supervised, comprehensive program for parents and guardians who have children involved in the dependency court system. This is a voluntary program which includes regular court appearances, residential or outpatient treatment, individual and group counseling, drug testing, and regular attendance at self-help meetings such as AA.

Child Protective Services (CPS): CPS often refers parents involved in open CPS cases to substance abuse treatment services. These referrals are often based on the individual's needs and can involve any level of care as assessed during intake. Active participation and/or successful completion of treatment can facilitate the reunification of families and parents with their children.

United States Federal Probation: Center Point DAAC provides outpatient substance abuse treatment and monitoring through drug testing to Federal Probation clients. 

Drug and alcohol treatment programs such as Center Point DAAC can break the cycle of addiction, address underlying issues, promote pro-social behaviors, and provide support systems that contribute to lower recidivism rates.

Breaking the Cycle of Addiction: Substance abuse is a prevalent criminogenic factor, often fueling criminal behavior as individuals engage in illegal activities to obtain drugs or alcohol. Drug and alcohol treatment programs provide a critical opportunity to interrupt this cycle of addiction. By providing individuals with the tools, support, and resources necessary to overcome substance abuse, treatment programs help individuals break free from the grip of addiction. Detoxification, counseling, medication-assisted treatment, and behavioral therapies are integral components of treatment that enable individuals to achieve and maintain sobriety.

Addressing Underlying Issues: Substance abuse often co-occurs with underlying issues such as mental health disorders, trauma, or socioeconomic challenges. Effective drug and alcohol treatment programs recognize and address these underlying issues concurrently with addiction. By offering comprehensive and integrated care, these programs help individuals confront and manage the root causes of their substance abuse. Therapy sessions and counseling provide a safe space for individuals to address and heal from trauma, develop coping mechanisms, and gain the necessary skills to navigate life's challenges without turning to drugs or alcohol.

Promoting Pro-Social Behaviors: Treatment programs equip individuals with essential pro-social skills and coping mechanisms necessary for successful reintegration into society. Through therapy, individuals learn effective communication, problem-solving, and anger management skills, reducing the likelihood of engaging in criminal behavior. Additionally, treatment programs often incorporate vocational training, educational opportunities, and employment support, empowering individuals with the tools to secure stable employment and become contributing members of society. By fostering personal growth and empowering individuals to make positive choices, drug and alcohol treatment promotes pro-social behaviors that reduce the risk of recidivism.

Supportive Networks and Aftercare: An important aspect of drug and alcohol treatment is the establishment of supportive networks and aftercare services. Treatment programs often connect individuals with community resources, peer support groups, and ongoing counseling, providing a safety net during the challenging post-treatment phase. These support systems help individuals navigate potential triggers, manage cravings, and prevent relapse. By promoting ongoing recovery and addressing the needs of individuals beyond the initial treatment phase, drug and alcohol treatment programs significantly enhance the chances of sustained rehabilitation and decreased recidivism rates.

Recognizing the importance of investing in comprehensive drug and alcohol treatment programs is crucial for both individuals and society, as they offer hope, healing, and the opportunity for a second chance at a productive and law-abiding life.
