The Forensics program provides outpatient community mental health to clients on probation, parole, or who have been referred to treatment by the criminal justice system.
Evidenced-based practices are utilized to assess and treat through the development of individualized treatment plans that support individuals in addressing mental health, substance use disorders, or co-occurring symptomology that allows them to maintain compliance with court-ordered recommendations and return home to society as an alternative to incarceration.
Forensics offers mental health and substance use disorders treatment, certified domestic violence, prime for life, relapse prevention, and trauma-informed care. All Forensic programs are offered in both English and Spanish.
If you have been convicted of a crime that you committed as a result of mental health problems, there is help available in the form of incarceration alternatives.
Valley Behavioral Health’s Forensics program helps clients who have been referred to treatment by the criminal justice system get the help they need so they can reclaim their lives and place in society.
