Choices For Change Addiction Program
What is the Choices for Change court diversion addiction program?
Diversion is not about the decriminalization or legalizing the possession or use of illicit drugs. It is about actively addressing drug use and abuse, with a goal of preventing drug users from committing drug-related crimes. Through this program, the Federal Prosecutor is able to offer eligible individuals charged with an eligible drug offense an opportunity to attend the drug assessment and education session offered by Choices for Change.
Please note that this program is only offered through court referral. We provide this program at our Barrie location. For more information please contact us at (705) 726.2503 or email@example.com.
Direct Accountability Program
What is the Direct Accountability program?
The Direct Accountability Program is an alternative to prosecution for eligible individuals over the age of 18 who have been charged with minor criminal offences. The program involves accused persons being held accountable through community based sanctions. Individuals referred to the Direct Accountability Programming Options have been assessed as being able to benefit from an opportunity to address the problematic thinking, feelings and behavior that has lead to their involvement with the criminal justice system.
Please note that participants must have been screened by the Crown as eligible to participate in the Direct Accountability Program and have been assessed as appropriate for one of the program options by the Community Justice Worker at the court. We provide this program at our Barrie and Orillia locations. For more information click here or contact us at (705) 726.2503 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
