                    Guidelines for Court-Ordered Services

            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.


            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.


            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

Court. This will ensure the client is enrolled in the correct level of treatment.



            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)


                                                                                                        3
  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

             1. 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

              1. 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)
