Chemical Dependency Disposition Alternative (CDDA)
CDDA is a disposition alternative for juvenile
offenders who are chemically dependent or substance abusing. Committable
youth receive a suspended sentence and one year of community supervision
and drug and alcohol treatment. Local sanction youth receive up to one
year of community supervision and drug and alcohol treatment.
This program intends to provide a combination of treatment
and supervision for an extended period of time. It is expected that the up
to one-year duration of both supervision and treatment will increase the
likelihood that the youth will remain substance free and not reoffend.
Treatment includes group therapy, life skills training, individual
counseling, narcotics/Alcoholics Anonymous, monitored abstinence
(urinalysis), cognitive-behavioral therapy, family counseling, and
individual and family chemical dependency education.
