The Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disability Services (DBHIDS) submits the following project proposal titled Enhanced Integrated Substance Abuse Treatment Services for Philadelphia Veterans Court. The project will enhance substance abuse treatment services provided to veterans adjudicated through Philadelphia Veterans Court by improving screening, referral, available treatment options, and coordination of care. The target population is veterans who are not eligible or willing to obtain services through the Veteran's Administration who present with symptoms of substance abuse disorders, mental health disorders, and/or trauma-related disorders. The enhancement project involves implementation of multiple evidence-based practices for these veterans including Motivational Interviewing and trauma-informed group therapy for substance abuse treatment, M-TREM group treatment for trauma recovery with modifications for veterans, anger management courses, life skills training, family support groups, and care coordination provided by veteran peer mentors. Funding will also allow for the provision of HIV care, increased urine drug screens, driver's education, referrals to housing and inpatient services, and to hire a Certified Forensic Veteran Peer Specialist to consult with veterans outside of the treatment environment. The goals of the project are to decrease symptoms of substance abuse and/or mental health disorders that impair activities of daily living, reduce the likelihood of continued criminal justice involvement, and increase community integration for the participants. The broader aim of this project is to continue to refine diversion procedures for veterans by targeting the underlying behavioral health and substance abuse issues that may have caused impairment in their functioning and criminal justice involvement, and to ultimately decrease the number of incarcerated veterans in the US.
