Treatment Continuum Alternative Program
Lehigh County's Treatment Continuum Alternative Program (TCAP) is a restorative diversionary program that offers recovery based services and diversionary sentencing to eligible individuals.
TCAP upholds key principles of public safety and accountability, while offering a treatment opportunity to individuals wanting to reclaim their lives after they have been negatively impacted by drugs and alcohol.
The program is enhanced by an effective treatment team of physicians, psychiatrists, licensed social workers, professional counselors, case managers, and probation officers dedicated to working with offenders through each individuals entire diversionary sentence. The team is trained in addictions, co-occurring disorders, and criminality, and utilizes best practices to optimize outcomes.
TCAP is funded by the Pennsylvania Commission of Crime & Delinquency (PCCD) and the Lehigh County Drug & Alcohol Commission.
