Staff divert individuals with serious mental illness (and often co-occurring substance use disorders), serious emotional disturbance and developmental disabilities in contact with the justice system from jail and provide linkages to community-based substance abuse treatment and support services. Primarily, inmates who are receiving psychiatric services from CSTS / JPORT are diverted upon Court approval.
Correctional Services Staff divert inmates who are court ordered to substance abuse treatment. The Correctional Services Counselor will meet with the court ordered inmate and facilitate the inmates contact and release to the court approved substance abuse center. The Correctional Services Counselor will also provide support to Community Corrections with inmates who are PA 511 eligible and are being diverted to substance abuse treatment.
