Mission: To break the cycle of addiction that causes crime homelessness and broken families.
Drug and alcohol addiction, crime and poverty are inextricably linked. The swelling number of homeless offenders and the enormous increase in drug-related arrests since the 1980s speak to the cycle of substance abuse, poverty, homelessness, violence and arrests. The severity and prevalence of substance abuse problems among criminal offenders is evident throughout the criminal justice system.
Since 1996, Options has offered a solution to this serious problem through a comprehensive relationship with the courts and community. We rehabilitate and restore the dignity of people who have fallen as far as they can. Our treatment approach is rooted in individual empowerment and the recognition that the client is the instrument of change.
We believe that treatment for alcohol and drug dependency is a human right, our services are provided on a sliding scale fee schedule, no one is turned away for inability to pay. Services are available immediately, no waiting list. We engage the larger community in intelligently investing its resources to achieve public safety and promote the belief that people can indeed change and that the cycle of substance abuse and crime can be broken.
Services include: outpatient treatment five days a week, mental health services at our clinic, clean and sober transitional housing, and an on site toxicology lab.
