The Brooklyn SAMHSA Behavioral Health Treatment Court Collaborative improves Treatment Court outcomes by utilizing evidence-based, enhanced services to reduce relapse and recidivism.
Crimes caused by the cycle of addiction are harmful to society as well as to those who offend. In particular, participants of Treatment Court often have higher rates of relapse and recidivism.
Provide enhanced services designed to anticipate and target the behaviors that are highly correlated with relapse and recidivism in order to increase successful completion rates, improve the lives of participants, and keep our communities safer.
How We Do it:
Working out of the Brooklyn Criminal Court, the Brooklyn SAMHSA Behavioral Health Treatment Court Collaborative provides centralized services, such as intensive case management, cognitive behavioral interventions, Health Home referrals, individualized vocational and educational counseling, and consumer-centered family consultation to participants of the STEP and MBTC Treatment Courts, which aim to reduce the negative impact of addiction, relapse, and recidivism on their participants and the community.
