Alternative Sentencing

Assistance Program

(A.S.A.P.)

A.S.A.P. is the Alternative Sentencing Assistance Program by Lifeworks Substance Abuse Services. We provide rehabilitation services to defendants charged with drug and alcohol-related offenses.The program’s objective is to provide an alternative to jail time for charges of DUI, possession and other drug-related charges. Drug Court has proven to be a successful alternative to incarceration but, unfortunately, many offenders may not qualify, our aim is to fill that need. Treatment offers the best alternative for interrupting the drug use/criminal justice cycle for offenders with drug problems. Untreated substance using offenders are more likely to relapse into drug use and criminal behavior, jeopardizing public health and safety and taxing criminal justice system resources. Additionally, treatment consistently has been shown to reduce the costs associated with lost productivity, crime, and incarceration caused by drug use.

Outpatient Program

Outpatient Program Treatment designed to meet the needs of individuals who suffer from a substance use disorder and would like weekly counseling, but don’t need Intensive Outpatient or Residential care.The program provides one on one counseling weekly and weekly group meetings in a supportive group setting. Participants attend for usually twelve to sixteen weeks. This level of care is appropriate for those who have moderate to severe alcohol and or substance abuse issues and those who are experiencing high-stress life circumstances that make it more difficult to cope with urges and cravings to use substances. Abstaining from alcohol and drug use is just the beginning of the healing and recovery process. Services include • Intake assessment and evaluation • Individualized plan of care • Group therapy • Individual therapy (one on one counseling) • Family involvement • Continuing care planning and referral

The Outpatient program is for those individuals who are able and willing to commit to a structured program that requires regular attendance and active participation. We understand that each person in this program comes with very diverse issues and problems. We are sensitive to everyone’s needs, personality, communication style, readiness to change and personal preferences. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that takes into consideration these preferences within the structure and guidelines of the intensive outpatient treatment program. We also offer DUI required outpatient treatment.

Outpatient treatment may be a good option if: • You can’t or don’t want to quit work or take a leave of absence. • You want to be close to loved ones. • You can stay away from drugs or alcohol where you live. • Inpatient treatment is too expensive. For Outpatient treatment to work well for you, it’s important to go to your sessions regularly and also get other support, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings. Having support from loved ones, good transportation, and a stable place to live also are important. At LifeWorks! extended drug recovery programs, Relapse Prevention, Personal Development and Family Support counseling, IPN (Impaired Program for Nurses) approved Program for Nurses are also available. This level of care is appropriate for those who have moderate to severe alcohol and or substance abuse issues and those who are experiencing high-stress life circumstances that make it more difficult to cope with urges and cravings to use substances.

Clients learn the differences among assertive, aggressive, and passive behaviors and practice being assertive in different situations. • Stress management. Clients identify situations that cause stress and learn a variety of techniques to respond to stress. Support groups (e.g., process-oriented recovery groups) Members focus on immediate issues and on: • Pragmatic ways to change negative thinking, emotions, and behavior • Tolerating or resolving conflict without resorting to violence or substance use

Didactic components often are supplemented by videos or slides to accommodate different learning styles.
