The requirements of each participant are individualized based on a variety of factors but general mandatory requirements include weekly meetings with Probation/Parole Officers, active participation in recommended treatment, and weekly appearance in Court.
In order to ensure the safety of the community and properly address the needs of the individual, all applicants to the program must be approved by the District Attorney’s Office and must undergo a thorough legal and clinical assessments.
