Program Coordinator: Emily Capps
The C.A.R.E. Program does not provide education or treatment on site; all clients are referred to DMHA approved education providers or treatment facilities based upon location, financial ability and need.
The Hamilton County Court Assisted Rehabilitative Efforts (C.A.R.E.) Program exists to assist clients who are active with the Court for alcohol or other drug-related offenses in being referred to appropriate education or treatment. The Program has been designated a fully certified Court Alcohol and Drug Program through the Indiana Office of Court Services. Currently, the Program employs six staff members who are not only certified probation officers, but are also certified by the State of Indiana to perform substance abuse assessments and subsequently make referrals to appropriate services.
The Hamilton County Department of Probation Services contracts with Prevail, Inc., who provides the Victim Impact Panel 4 to 5 times per year. Clients are typically court ordered to attend the Victim Impact Panel when convicted of Operating While Intoxicated, or they may be referred at the discretion of C.A.R.E. Program staff. Approximately 300 people attend each panel, where between 3 and 5 panel members speak.
