The Substance Abuse Services and Corrections Mental Health programs of Community Mental Health Authority of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham Counties (CMHA CEI) offer a program that provides outpatient treatment to individuals who are incarcerated in the Ingham County Jail and present with a diagnosis of drug or alcohol abuse or dependence. The CATS program provides individual and group therapy, as well as case management for CATS clients. For those individuals who need additional support for their recovery, referrals are made, while the client is still in jail, to support ongoing recovery and re-integration back to the community. CATS has staff that are designated to serve those with mental health issues that may not be able to be housed safely within the jail without closer monitoring (see Crisis Services Section).
All CATS Program clients are inmates of the Ingham County Jail (ICJ) and must demonstrate at least minimal motivation for complying with treatment and have some history of substance abuse; or substance abuse related offenses. The most common referral sources are:
Individuals are screened by CATS staff during the Orientation process, after a referral is received. Information obtained during this process is used to determine if there is a need to complete a full assessment for substance abuse treatment.
Once the initial screening is complete and it has been determined the individual is in need of substance abuse treatment, they are scheduled for an assessment with a CATS therapist, to determine the appropriate level of care needed. For those referred by the courts or other outside sources, results of the assessment and any recommendations for treatment can be provided to the referring party, if the client signs appropriate releases of information.
Substance abuse treatment at CATS is based on a harm reduction model of providing services, to reduce, if not stop, a person’s use. Additionally, the CATS staff is experienced in the use of cognitive behavioral approaches and motivational interviewing techniques, to assist each client in challenging their own limiting thoughts and beliefs and support development of the skills necessary to promote a healthier and more pro-social, recovery based lifestyle. All CATS therapists are licensed to treat both mental health and substance abuse issues and are capable of providing services to the co-occurring population. Male and female treatment sessions are held separately, per jail protocol. Certificates of Completion are provided, as well as letters to courts and probation officers, upon request.
CATS staff provide emergency screening and intervention to individuals who are exhibiting, or have recently exhibited, any signs of self harm or suicidal thoughts or behaviors. Staff provides housing and monitoring recommendations to jail staff to ensure individuals are housed safely while in jail. Referrals can also be made for individuals receiving psychiatric medications, mental health services or recent hospitalizations. CATS staff also make referrals for psychiatric hospitalization, as deemed appropriate. “ Referrals are made to CMHA-CEI Adult Mental Health Services for individuals who are diagnosed with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI).
CATS provides case management services for clients who need continued treatment after jail release. A Needs Assessment is completed upon first contact. Referrals are made for housing, entitlements, clothing, education, medical, employment and/or training, continued treatment and 1/2 or 3/4 way housing for those needing more support in their recovery. The case manager also follows-up with individuals after release from jail to ensure that connections were made successfully.
