Building on the successes of the San Juan County DWI Center, the Mission of the San Juan County Methamphetamine Pilot Program is to increase recovery potential for methamphetamine abusing offenders within the San Juan County criminal justice system and to impact the community at large in a positive manner by providing best practices treatment in the field of substance abuse to clients of the Methamphetamine Program; to provide for the safety and security of incarcerated inmates by maintaining care, custody and control; and to provide follow-up support, accountability, and advocacy for families and clients who have completed the incarceration and treatment program components.
The Methamphetamine Pilot Program accepts substance-abusing offenders convicted within the San Juan County court system. The jail-based methamphetamine treatment center combines clear punitive consequences with evidenced-based treatment strategies and case-managed aftercare to support clients' sobriety and recovery. The program objectives are clear: maintain a safe and secure environment, provide the "tools" necessary for addiction recovery, motivate the client toward behavior change, and appropriately support clients' navigation through the aftercare process.
The MPP provides 60 days of gender appropriate inpatient substance abuse treatment preceded and followed by intensive case management. The treatment strategy, sensitive to the engagement level and ability of the clients, includes individual & group therapy, life skills, substance abuse & health education, 12-Step programs, and Job Club. The Program utilizes the Community Reinforcement Approach in helping clients identify individualized strategies to avoid alcohol and drug abuse within the context of Motivational Interviewing.
Upon completion of the secure inpatient phase, clients complete at least 12 weeks of Intensive Outpatient Programming based on the Matrix Model followed by at least another 9 months of aftercare. With the exception of case management, Presbyterian Medical Services provides these services.
State and local service agencies have created a collaborative strategy that leverages multi-agency resources for pre-admission screening and continuing care / follow-up. Collaborating entities include various departments within San Juan County, Totah Behavioral Health Authority, Presbyterian Medical Services, San Juan Safe Communities Initiative, CYFD, Drug Court, Adult Probation, Farmington Municipal Court Services, Adult Misdemeanor Compliance, and Pre-trial Services.
The Methamphetamine Pilot Program is located at 1006 Municipal Drive and 1256 W. Navajo.
