Town Hall: Utah County's Response to the Opiate Epidemic
The O.U.T. Program is a short term residential substance dependency treatment program infused by Utah County Department of Drug and Alcohol Prevention and Treatment into the Utah County Jail. Eligible inmates will receive approximately 20 hours of programming per week, consisting of 4 hours per day, 5 days per week, for 13 weeks.
The O.U.T. Program consists of group psychotherapy and psycho-educational groups. In addition each participant will receive an individual substance dependency assessment/evaluation, individual therapy, and individual case management. Individual case management will focus on employment, housing, and relapse prevention planning. In order to be found eligible the individual will need to specifically apply for The O.U.T. Program, have good behavior, and already be sentenced with enough time remaining in their sentence to successfully complete the 90-day program. The O.U.T. Program focuses on treating 8 major and moderate criminogenic needs, or in other words, targets the participant's individual needs related to their risks of re-offending and coming back to jail.
