CDDA Probation Counselor Ruhi Tufts
Probation Counselor Ruhi Tufts

This sentencing option was created by the legislature to provide services to youth that have chemical abuse and or dependency problems.

Youth receive evaluation and assessment prior to being sentenced and entering the program. While participating in the program youth receive intensive outpatient or inpatient treatment, as appropriate. Treatment is provided in partnership with a community treatment provider to assure that the youth on this disposition can receive skills to remain alcohol and drug free.

In addition to treatment, they are assigned to a probation counselor who provides both community supervision and intensive case management services. Emphasis is on making amends to victims and community, keeping youth in school, resolving family problems, encouraging positive peer associations, supporting compliance with court ordered conditions and reducing risk of recidivism. The treatment provider and probation counselor coordinate services to support youths' sobriety and increase competencies.
