                   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. In order for a

client to complete a counseling program 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 six (6) 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) 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. (Revised 1/27/09)
