Program Description

The Problem:

Manhattan Treatment Court does not have vocational or peer services on site for their participants, nor do they complete interventions to address criminogenic thinking.

Our Solution:

Provide a case manager, vocational counselor, and peer mentor on-site at Manhattan Treatment Court to enhance participants’ recovery.

How We Do it:

Participants in Manhattan Treatment Court are diagnosed with a substance use disorder and have taken a plea for alternative to incarceration so that they can receive substance abuse services. Our staff provides vocational and enhanced services directly in Manhattan Treatment Court to allow for easy collaboration with the Manhattan Treatment Court staff. Vocational Counselors provide job readiness and preparation assistance and Case Managers oversee an interactive journaling intervention for participants in groups or one-on-one to address their criminogenic thinking. Furthermore, Peer Specialists share their personal experience and knowledge to help participants find success in their recovery process and programs and provide personal support as well as escort participants to programs and other places within the community.

The Outcomes of Manhattan Treatment Court Risk-Needs-Responsivity Project
