How will vocational / employment / educational needs be addressed?

The CDT Program offers a GED program, vocational assessment, and employment training. The program collaborates with the Cattaraugus County Once Step Program, BOCES, Olean City Schools, and Everywoman Opportunity Center to provide comprehensive services to address individuals' needs. There is a strong focus on assisting consumers to re-enter the workforce.

How will alcohol and substance abuse issues be addressed?

The Guidepost has a MICA (mentally ill chemical abuser) program that is very successful in addressing these issues.  Individuals will be randomly screened for substance abuse via urine and/or serum levels.

What happens when the individual is no longer on probation?

Once the individual has successfully completed their period of probation, they will have the option of continuing to attend the program if they remain appropriate for this level of service. If they no longer require a CDT level of treatment, they will be referred for services at Olean Counseling Center.

What if the individual does not follow treatment recommendations?

We will not hesitate to use the Probation Department's influence on an individual to convince them to follow the terms of probation. Failing that, we will ask that the Probation Officer issue a violation.

How is a referral made?

Referrals are made to the Program Director (Peggy Keller, 373-8080). The individual will be screened for admission. It is our hope that many of the screening will be made during the pre-sentencing interviews in conjunction with the Probation Department so that, when appropriate, the recommendation can be made in the Probation report.
