“Tears of relief recently ran down one participant’s face as he entered a new program aimed at getting troubled drug offenders treatment.
The new initiative is less than two months old, but already it is paying dividends, according to those running it
Of the seven people who started the Medication Assisted Treatment Induction Program for Denver probationers, four remain enrolled. The program aims to identify troubled probationers who aren’t complying with requirements that they remain drug free. It gives them the option of receiving methadone treatment while in jail. Then they are handed off to an outpatient treatment program upon their release from custody.”
