1 Lycoming County Adult Treatment Court Participant Handbook * This handbook is to be used as a general guide to The Lycoming County Treatment Court Program. It is not intended to answer specific questions regarding your case(s) or parole/probation. Please direct these questions to your attorney or probation officer.

2 LYCOMING COUNTY TREATMENT COURT INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW MISSION From the mid-1980 s through today, the local criminal justice system has been inundated with alcohol, drug and drug-related cases. Changes in DUI and drug laws, as well as in sentencing guidelines, have filled jails and prisons but have done little to reduce the cycle of addiction and criminal activity and its effect on public safety. Over the past 20 years, hundreds of jurisdictions nationwide have piloted innovative approaches to alcohol and other drug-related offenders. This approach combines intensive alcohol and other drug treatment and increased court supervision to maximize the chances that addicted defendants will maintain substance and crime free lifestyles. For these reasons, the Lycoming County Court of Common Pleas has instituted its Lycoming County Treatment Court Programs. The goal of the Treatment Courts is to reduce alcohol and other drug abuse, reduce recidivism, and reduce the criminal caseloads of the Court s docket through diversion of select cases. The crux of the Treatment Court Programs is a heightened level of judicial involvement and intensive probation supervision. Direct and frequent contact between the offender and Judge motivates program compliance. Additionally, immediate judicial reaction to successes and failures encourages the participant s rehabilitation.

3 APPLICATION AND APPROVAL PROCESS AND COURT APPEARANCES ELIGIBILITY To be eligible for the Treatment Court Program, the offender must be a substance dependent adult charged with a non-violent, non-drug trafficking offense. The applicant must not have a past record of violent felony offenses. The following offenses are excluded from consideration: * Drug delivery (or possession with intent to deliver) more than 2.5 grams of cocaine, 1 gram of heroin, 1 pound of marijuana; * Homicide * Felony one Burglary * Felony one or two Robbery * Kidnapping * Aggravated Assault * Weapon offenses/other charges involving a firearm * Sexual Offenses * Arson * DUI with children in vehicle * DUI with aggravated assault * DUI with death or serious bodily injury Multiple pending cases will be considered as long as the offender otherwise meets the qualifications. Probation and intermediate punishment violators are also eligible. APPLICATION AND APPROVAL PROCESS Eligible offenders must submit a Treatment Court application and release of information form to the Treatment Court Judge s Office. Upon receipt of the application, the Judge s Office will record the date received and forward it to the District Attorney s office for recommendation. The District Attorney will recommend or not recommend the applicant, noting the level of offense and reasons for their decision, and return the application to the Judge s Office. If recommended by the District Attorney or Treatment Court Judge, the applicant will be referred for evaluation to the West Branch Drug and Alcohol Abuse Commission. Once the evaluation is complete, the application will be returned to the Judge s Office and scheduled for staffing by the Treatment Court Committee. The Committee will vote on acceptance. In case of a tie, the Treatment Court Judge will decide admission. If the application is denied, the Judge s Office will notify the applicant. Counsel for the offender may request reconsideration and may request to be present to speak with the Committee. If approved, the applicant will receive notice of the hearing date and be advised to contact the Adult Probation Office for review of conditions of the program. Once the applicant accepts the conditions, he or she will report to the next scheduled Treatment Court session for guilty plea and placement on the Treatment Court Program. DUI Offenders will be sentenced to a five year maximum intermediate punishment (IP) sentence. The DUI Participant will be eligible for electronic monitoring for all or part of the mandatory minimum incarceration portion of the sentence. Other offenses will be sentenced to at least three years intermediate punishment supervision.

4 At a minimum, the first year will require active participation in the Treatment Court Program followed by one year of aftercare and another year of intensive probation supervision. Upon sentencing, the participant enters Phase I of the Treatment Court Program and will be placed on GPS or electronic monitoring, a drug patch and/or a SCRAM unit. The Adult Probation Office will advise the participant of treatment requirements. PROGRESS HEARINGS During Phases I and II, participants will be required to attend progress hearings bi-weekly. The Judge will inquire of the participant his or her progress. Treatment professionals are also encouraged to attend the sessions. The Treatment Court Judge is responsible for encouraging, sanctioning, and changing any conditions of the program. The participant will be given notice of the next court appearance. Upon successful completion of Phase I, the participant will be presented a certificate and be moved to Phase II. During Phase II, the participant will continue to report to court bi-weekly. After successfully completing Phase II, the participant will enter Phase III and report to court monthly. When the client completes Phase III, he or she will be eligible to graduate the Treatment Court Program. Treatment Court proceedings should be kept confidential. No information disclosed shall be the basis for prosecution of new crimes, and no participant shall be required to testify to any information discussed or disclosed during court hearing. None of the proceedings, other than guilty plea, sentencing, or probation, intermediate punishment or parole violation hearings, will be held on the record. It is strongly discouraged to have children attend progress hearings.

It is his/her responsibility to make sure you follow your court order, rules of probation and abide by the law in the community. You will receive a list of the rules of probation from the probation officer. Read these rules carefully and ask your probation officer if you do not understand something. While you are a member of Treatment Court you must follow these rules or face a penalty from the court. The probation officer will also be responsible for monitoring curfews, house arrests and electronic monitoring/gps. If you are placed on one of these restrictions, your probation officer will explain what is involved. The Treatment Court may ask you to complete journals, essays, the Life Skills/Job Skills course, employment searches and other programs. The probation officer will be monitoring these orders and reporting to the court on their status. The probation officer will also be conducting random drug testing while you are on the Treatment Court Program. Alcohol or other drug testing may include: SCRAM, urinalysis, patch, breathalyzer and saliva.
