GUIDELINES FOR COURT-ORDERED SERVICES
Education Programs
Education Programs are designed to teach skills that enable individuals to deal constructively and consistently with their issues. In order for a client to complete an education program, the client must participate in the treatment program outlined by the service provider, followed by a positive recommendation from the educator. One-on-one sessions with a licensed counselor/therapist are not required, nor is there a stipulation on how many sessions it takes to complete a class. That decision is left with the service provider.
Education Programs Include: .Anger Management
. Child Neglect/ Endangerment 52 Week Programs
. Domestic Violence-Victims
.Parenting-Neglect/Chronic Neglect
Counseling
Counseling is a combination of one-on-one and group sessions supervised by a licensed counselor/therapist for purpose of behavior modification. Court-ordered counseling requires at least two (2) hours per week of contact with the counselor/therapist for a minimum of six (6) months, followed by a positive recommendation from the counselor/therapist. Multiple orders for counseling may require attendance for more than two hours per week of individual and group counseling to complete all the programs. Receiving services from a non-approved provider can be interpreted as non-compliance and may not meet the court¡¦s requirement.
Counseling Services Include: .Failure/ Learning to Protect
.Domestic Violence/Perpetrator
.Physical Abuse-Perpetrator
.Sexual Abuse-Perpetrator
Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance Abuse Treatment requires a combination of one-on-one and group sessions supervised by a counselor/therapist for the purpose of behavior modification.
ASSESSMENT
It is highly recommended that all clients be assessed by the Kern County Mental Health (KCMH) Substance Abuse System of Care Gate Team/Gate Keeper located at Juvenile Justice Center, 2100 College Ave., Bakersfield, CA 93305. This will ensure the client is enrolled in the correct level of treatment.
Nov. 2014 4
TREATMENT
In order to address the issues of substance abuse, the client must participate in a certified treatment program, including initial assessment by, and weekly contact with, an Alcohol and Drug Program (ADP) certified counselor for a minimum of four (4) months AND thereafter, a relapse prevention/support program, at least weekly, for a minimum of two (2) months, followed by a positive recommendation from the counselor. Documentation of weekly attendance is submitted to the social worker on a monthly basis identifying the client¡¦s level of treatment. Parent(s) must complete the treatment plan, including aftercare, whether or not children have been returned to the home. Receiving services from a non-approved provider can be interpreted as non-compliance and may not meet the court¡¦s requirement.
. PC 1000 Programs
Clients enrolled in a PC 1000 course need to assessed by the Gate Keeper at the Juvenile Justice Center. PC 1000 does not meet requirements for Court Ordered Substance Abuse Treatment. PC 1000 is a pre-sentencing, drug diversion program. Diversion Programs are educational, and are not considered treatment; therefore PC 1000 does not meet the Kern County Mental Health Substance Abuse System of Care (KCMH) treatment model. The Gate Keeper will refer clients to substance abuse providers who will work with the probation department to ensure the client is enrolled in a substance abuse treatment program that will meet the client¡¦s PC 1000 commitment and meet court ordered substance abuse treatment.
. Lerdo Substance Abuse Education Course
Clients incarcerated or who were incarcerated at the Kern County Lerdo Detention Facility, who attended substance abuse classes offered by the Bakersfield Adult School must be assessed by the KCMH Gate Keeper upon release. Classes offered by Bakersfield Adult School are prevention education and only meet the requirement of KCMH Substance Abuse System of Care Treatment Level 1. Therefore, only clients who are assessed by the KCMH Gate Keeper as needing substance abuse treatment Level 1 may count this as meeting their case plan objective. (Revised 10/11)
For the most current information on Kern County Mental Health approved Substance Abuse providers, contact the Kern County Mental Health Gate Keeper at Juvenile Justice Center at
(661) 868-4222 or OC Sills Building, (661)631-6266.
