The Criminal Justice Services program focuses on early identification of addiction, treatment engagement and retention. Municipal and Common Pleas court referrals are provided assessment in the Knox County Jail setting. Those with a qualifying diagnosis are provided groups, individual counseling and case management as needed for re-entry. Services are also provided as on-site satellite offices at Municipal and Common Pleas program buildings to help increase client access to treatment and reduce engagement barriers.
This program is operated in collaboration with the Knox County Sherriff’s Office, Mount Vernon Municipal Court and Knox County Common Pleas Court.
