Choosing Healthy Options to Instill Change and Empowerment

The Choosing Healthy Options to Instill Change and Empowerment (CHOICE) program was developed as a result of Assembly Bill 109 and offers intensive case management and behavioral health treatment services to probationers on formal supervised probation with the San Bernardino County Probation Department. CHOICE is a collaborative partnership between DBH and the Probation Department to provide mental health and substance use disorder services to qualifying consumers assigned to report to one of Probation’s three Day Reporting and Reentry Services Centers (DRRSCs.) Services include screenings, assessments, case management, treatment planning, individual and group psychotherapy, crisis intervention, outpatient treatment and psychiatric services.

The CHOICE program offers an Intensive Outpatient modality at the clinic located in Colton. Additionally, at this location, psychiatric and medication support services are available. At the Probation Department’s DRRSC located in Fontana, San Bernardino, and Victorville an outpatient clinic is co-located to offer probationers a one-stop setting to meet with Probation personnel, receive behavioral treatment services along with temporary housing and acquire other resources such as financial assistance, medical and employment support. A comprehensive, recovery-oriented treatment plan is used to assist participants in reaching their individualized treatment goals. Additionally, Substance Use Disorder (SUD) outpatient clinics are also available at the DRRSCs located in Fontana and Victorville for this population with substance use disorders or co-occurring disorders.

The CHOICE program also works with the Correctional Mental Health (CMH) program and the Public Defender’s Office to coordinate behavioral health services for individuals entering the community after a period of incarceration.
