Rehabilitation Services Offered for our Clients
If you suffer from drug or alcohol addiction, when the trial is over, the case is not necessarily closed. Rehabilitation is the next step to putting the entire incident behind you and moving forward in your life. Treatment programs are available for substance abuse, problems with mental health, anger management, sexual offenses, and more for anyone on conditional release or probation. We partner with Rosencrance Rehabilitation Facilities and Hazelden to help you get the best treatment possible. We also recommend Westcare, Sheriff Dart’s Cook County Boot Camp, and Hinsdale Hospital for your rehabilitation needs.
WestCare Illinois Sheridan Correctional Center
WestCare and the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) work together to offer substance abuse treatment programs to male inmates in custody in Cook County. At Sheridan Correctional Center, inmates go through a three-phase (orientation, treatment, and prerelease reentry/reintegration) modified therapeutic community to help them recover. Once released, participants who successfully complete the in-prison 19-24 month long program are supervised on parole and are required to participate in aftercare services. Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities (TASC), another partner of WestCare, manages inmates’ cases while on parole and can help offenders downgrade their current charges if they participate in TASC probation. For more information, visit their website.
The Vocational Rehabilitation Impact Center (also known as Cook County Sheriffs Boot Camp)
The Vocational Rehabilitation Impact Center (VRIC), formerly known as the Boot Camp, is Cook County’s impact incarceration program and alternative to prison. Its mission is for comprehensive rehabilitation for offenders suffering from substance abuse. It provides court-ordered nonviolent offenders a 4-month detention program that includes training in vocational skills, education, basic discipline, and more. It also offers an 8-month post-release supervision program to assist VRIC graduates in finding employment. The program also accepts inmates from other counties on a trial basis.
