Request: Authorization to accept grant 

 

Purpose:   The Cook County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) is requesting authorization to accept a new grant award in the amount of $187,975.00, from the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, for the Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) Program. The overall strategy of the RSAT program, implemented by the CCSO, is to provide grant-funded personnel that will engage detainees in programming and assist with care coordination in the community post release.

Summary:  The RSAT program will incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based treatment interventions to include curricula from Breaking the Cycle, Thinking for Change, and the Change Companies materials. Additionally, the program will include a rigorous reentry care coordination effort and discharge planning. The reentry effort will be supported by care coordinators and community partner agencies that provide in-reaching services to support the program and encourage warm handoffs from Cook County Department of Corrections (CCDOC) program care coordinators to the community partner case managers or treatment providers. Following discharge, CCDOC reentry care coordinators will continue to provide ongoing support and referral services to those released individuals.

 

Assessments to be used will be the DASS 42, ASSIST, TCU, and ACES. These assessments are already being used by CCDOC program staff and are in line with the SMART program framework. Further, by utilizing measures already in use at CCDOC, the CCSO Research team will be better able to analyze data for program development and outcome information. The DAPPER-3 will be used to establish need and level of treatment. DAPPER-3 is designed to create individualized treatment plans by focusing the attention on factors that need immediate attention and are treatment plan priorities. The design is focused on documenting severity within a given ASAM dimension, not a normalized "score" based on an average. This allows each individual to receive the specialized and specific treatment they need throughout all stages of treatment. The DAPPER-3 rating design facilitates continued care by offering up to five additional ratings to determine, if desired, changes or improvements are evinced during the treatment continuum.

 

The aim of the reentry planning component of the Sheriff’s SMART program is to establish thought patterns and habits that prevent participants from future substance use. Community partner group in-reaching, individualized discharge planning, and intensive case management will be employed to assist participants’ reentry to the community. Aggressive case management and ongoing clinical services will be provided to incarcerated detainees, and ongoing services will be provided by community providers once released.
