SUBSTANCE ABUSE CASELOAD

The Substance Abuse Caseload is incorporated into the progressive sanctions model of the Community Supervision and Corrections Department of Taylor, Callahan and Coleman Counties.  The caseload is designed to divert offenders having alcohol and/or drug needs from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Institutional Division to the community in a controlled setting.  The caseload’s purpose is also designed to assist in the facilitation of the protection of society and rehabilitation of the defendant.  Offenders are supervised for twelve months on the caseload with an early release from the program available at nine (9) months, for compliant offenders, as an incentive.  All caseload participants have documented alcohol and/or drug needs which historically lead to the offender being committed to prison.  

Due to the low ratio of offender to officer (60:1), the officer has more opportunity to provide an increased level of surveillance and supervision of each offender.  The officer is trained and experienced in working with offenders that have substance abuse needs.  The officer, utilizing the CJAD Case Classification System and Strategies for Case Supervision processes, determines risk/needs levels of the probationer, develops an individualized supervision plan, and arranges for the offender to receive needed services (referral to the Outpatient Substance Abuse Counseling Program) to ensure public safety, address substance abuse and promote responsible behavior. 

This program assists the jurisdiction in reducing reliance on traditional incarceration and/or promotes the rehabilitation of offenders.  If not for this program as part of the progressive sanctions model the offenders would have Motions to Revoke filed.
