Treatment Continuum Alternative to Prison
Northampton County's Treatment Continuum Alternative to Prison (TCAP) is a diversionary program that addresses an individual's criminal violations or charges proactively by giving the tools and opportunities necessary to building a life in recovery and providing structure and support in early recovery.
A Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS), drawing on personal and professional knowledge and experience, will provide individual recovery support for TCAP participants.
TCAP is funded by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime & Delinquency (PCCD) and the Northampton County Drug & Alcohol Commission.
Who Can Participate?
Individuals must be over the age of 18 and must be a Northampton County Resident approved by Northampton County Court. Both male and female, non-violent offenders (violence related to drug & alcohol is evaluated case by case) who require D&A treatment based on PCPC assessments and voluntarily consent to the program can participate.
Individuals with a history of arson, sex offense(s), violence separate from drug/alcohol use, un-managed or unstable psychiatric/medical conditions (including detox), and/or an I.Q. lower than 75 are not eligible to participate.
