JUSTICE SYSTEM REFERRALS
Our clients come from all walks of life within our community, including those incarcerated for non-violent crimes directly related to their substance abuse issues.
Within the Odyssey House Admissions Department, we have court liaisons who act as advocates for our residents and work to ensure an environment of cooperation with the court systems.
Our court liaisons interview and assess individuals with non-violent crimes for placement into Odyssey House, and work with judges, district attorneys, and defense attorneys to work towards a positive outcome for our clients. We attend Family and Criminal Courts proceedings with our clients to provide support, clear and concise communications and family reunification.
We also run the Edgecombe Residential Treatment Program, a comprehensive substance abuse treatment program designed to reduce the risk of re-incarceration. It is a collaborative effort by Odyssey House, NYS Division of Parole, NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services, and NYS Department of Correctional Services.
