Court - Probation Compliant - DCFS
As result of substance use and/or addiction many individuals find themselves with court issues, on probation, children taken out of the home or an open case with DCFS (Department of Children and Family Services) and required to follow certain instructions to be compliant.
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of San Fernando Valley, has been actively working with the legal system for over 40 years and has an established relationship, allowing the opportunity for the participants to fulfill the requirements that allow the case to be closed.
Additionally, NCADD works very close with the referring agency, adhering to all confidentiality requirements in providing complete progress report or other specific documentation as requested.
After a complete assessment, a case manager is assigned; the participant is referred to the appropriate services within NCADD that best fits their specific needs. Details and additional information for each program may be found on our website.
Court Referral - Defendants ordered to do outpatient treatment services by the court, may contact NCADD for an intake appointment. Defendants are advised to bring a copy of the minute order, given by the court, so we can help them fulfill all requirements. Defendants do not need to be court ordered and may enroll prior to the court ordered treatment. Upon completion of the intake, a complete assessment will be done, and a Treatment Plan will be developed identifying goals and objective while services are being provided. Case managers will help the client recognize action steps necessary to complete treatment, fulfill court requirements and learn to live a lifestyle free of the use of substances.
