Here is an overview of the Day Reporting Center Program:
There are 15 Day Reporting Centers (DRCs) currently in operation throughout the State. Day Reporting Centers provide intensive substance abuse treatment for up to 100 offenders sentenced by the Courts or who have not responded to more traditional supervision and treatment efforts. Failure at a DRC results in revocation proceedings against the offender. Although the cost is more than field probation, a DRC it is only a fraction of the cost of providing a residential alternative.
The program includes components such as substance abuse counseling, cognitive restructuring, adult basic education, employment enhancement, intensive supervision, and community service. A six month aftercare component follows the on-site programming. Offenders assigned to the program are required to be employed while in phase 2 of the program.
