The Adult Placement Program is ordered by the court. The defendant’s court orders will state the only form of alternative sentencing is residential treatment. The defendant is responsible for finding a residential treatment program approved by the Probation Department. Residential treatment can last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on what is required by the court and/or the need of the individual. The defendant is also responsible for the cost of residential treatment.
If accepted into the Adult Placement Program, the defendant will be assigned to a supervision caseload where a Probation Officer will actively monitor treatment progress and compliance, and verify such with the treatment provider. Custody credits will be given while in the Adult Placement Program if the defendant is successful. The defendant will be required to abstain from alcohol and drugs, and submit to testing, and search and seizure.
