Support Systems Homes Legal Advocacy Services
Support Systems Homes advocates within the legal system on behalf of our clients.
We work very closely with the judicial system – attorneys, judges, probation officers, and parole officers – to coordinate treatment for individuals with current and/or prior legal issues. We work with clients who require the assistance of a highly respected provider in the field of substance abuse treatment.
Have you been ordered to attend a recovery program by a judge?
Come to Support Systems Homes! We are accredited and authorized for legally mandated supervised recovery programs.
You can expect the following services from our Legal Advocacy Services:
- Generation of acceptance letters, progress reports, and termination or completion letters.
- Appearance of a court liaison when necessary and upon court or probation request. Please contact the Support Systems Homes main office at 408-370-9688 for more information on this service; costs for out-of-area appearances etc.
- Clients will report to scheduled court dates with a minimum of 5 documented 12-step meetings, signed and verified, a copy of our program-generated progress letter, and a letter from a 12-step program sponsor.
- Program participants will have read and signed our rules and guidelines. Clients sign a release of confidentiality to ensure timely communication between us and referral entities regarding progress, willingness or lack of participation.
- We closely monitor the activity log-in/log-out sheets; each client is held accountable for times and destinations and is made available for probation or other court entities.
- Fees for a Sober Living Environment are around $700 per month in March 2018. Any increase will be presented in advance.
- In cases of relapse, we assure client and community safety by discharging the client to:
- Detoxification or medical facility
- A safe house, such as a sponsor or clean and sober friend/relative
- Sober Living Environment house transfer
If there is a relapse, referral entities will be notified immediately via fax and phone call.
We will also assess the client to create a viable Treatment plan.
If the client is allowed to stay, the following restrictions would apply:
- Program commitment length would begin again
- Revocation of weekend passes
- General restrictions to protect and support recovery
At Support Systems Homes, we believe treatment and supportive living are vital stepping-stones to successful recovery.
Support Systems Homes advocates rehabilitation as a viable and preferable alternative to jails/prison for individuals with substance abuse related legal problems. We believe in treating clients with dignity and respect while teaching them accountability and responsibility during all phases of treatment.
