Who is eligible
Incarcerated individuals in the Spokane County Jail and at Geiger Corrections Center.
The Innovative Project at Geiger Correction Center provides services for incarcerated individuals who intend to engage in substance use disorder services to include screening, assessment and referrals to community-based intensive inpatient services and to Geiger Corrections Services.
The Geiger Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program is available to post-conviction individuals (have been sentenced) currently incarcerated at Geiger Correction Center with approximately 3-4 month sentences in addition to pre-trial individuals who are interested in engaging in treatment prior to being adjudicated.
Evidence-based curriculum is utilized in the IOP program to include:
- Thinking For A Change is a principle that thinking controls how people act, and that to change the way people act, they have to take control of their thinking.(We do not use Thinking for a Change)
The Matrix Model provides a framework for engaging stimulant (e.g., methamphetamine and cocaine) abusers in treatment and helping them achieve abstinence.
Seeking Safety is a present-focused coping skills model for clients with a history of trauma and/or substance abuse.
Who is eligible
All program participants are currently incarcerated in the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center. Referrals are based on screening initially conducted upon entry to the facility and designating individuals with medium to high multi-dimensional Risk-Need factors. In response to these risk factors, further screening and assessment may be conducted to determine Risk-Need-Responsivity.
The King County Corrections-Based Substance Use Disorder Treatment Program at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center provides in-jail treatment to individuals incarcerated due to a substance use disorder (SUD). The program is comprised of a complex array of services that include established evidence-based curriculum and therapeutic community approach. Curriculum includes Living-in-Balance and Moral Reconation Therapy being facilitated within one of the medium security programming housing units. Participants are treated with dignity, respect, and consideration of the whole person in a trauma informed approach.
Counseling modes used incorporate individual client assessments of needs and progress, combined with the planning and delivery of interventions targeted to client readiness, engagement, life-skills building, and stages of recovery. In addition, Pioneer partners with the Asian Counseling and Referral Services in the delivery of Intensive-Outpatient treatment of SUD’s as well as the delivery of domestic violence services at the Community Center for Alternative Programs.
Evidence-based curriculum is utilized in the outpatient program to include:
- Living-in-Balance is a comprehensive SUD treatment program that emphasizes relapse prevention delivering psycho-educational and experiential training designed to enhance program participant level of functioning in key life areas that are often neglected with prolonged substance use.
- Moral Reconation Therapy is a cognitive behavioral approach with a systematic treatment strategy that seeks to decrease recidivism in individuals who were formerly, or are currently, incarcerated by increasing moral reasoning. The therapy progressively addresses ego, social, moral, and positive behavioral growth.
Who is eligible
Homeless individuals are admitted that are experiencing substance use disorders and behavioral health issues. The individuals must be amenable to treatment and identified by law enforcement or embedded social workers.
The Snohomish County Diversion Center is a 44-bed facility (32 men and 12 women) offering short-term placement and shelter to homeless adults with a substance use disorder and other behavioral health issues, diverting them away from incarceration and toward treatment.
During their stay, residents are assigned a case manager who will help enroll them in an assortment of treatment options, including medication assisted treatment, inpatient/residential treatment, and other social services to address their individual needs. The process is resident-driven based on their needs and specific circumstances.
The center is staffed twenty four hours a day by Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and resident monitors. Staff on site provide medical and behavioral health screenings at intake and medical monitoring throughout a client's stay. Residents will also undergo a thorough needs assessment and assertive engagement into available services, medication assisted treatment options, and individualized support and recovery plan development.
