Supervised Treatment After Release

The Supervised Treatment After Release (STAR) program is the treatment component of the Mental Health Court system of care. Individuals are generally referred while incarcerated in a county detention facility. STAR is a voluntary treatment program for individuals who suffer from severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) and have a history of recidivism in the criminal justice system. Participants must be referred by the multidisciplinary team (MDT) for the Mental Health Courts located throughout the county (Rancho Cucamonga, Victorville, San Bernardino) and accept participation in this program as a condition of their probation. The MDT includes personnel from Mental Health Court, the Public Defender and District Attorney Offices, Sheriff and Probation Departments and the Forensic Assertive Community Treatment (FACT) program.

Upon acceptance of terms and conditions of probation requiring mental health treatment, the individuals are released into the community and closely monitored by the STAR treatment team. STAR is designed to reduce hospitalizations and incarcerations by assisting participants to reenter into society. Through Day Treatment Rehabilitation or Intensive Outpatient modalities, participants receive individual and group therapy, psychiatric and medication support services and case management services, which include housing, medical, financial and vocational assistance. For substance use disorders, drug and alcohol treatment services are available, such as assessment, individual, family and group counseling, crisis intervention, follow-up, case management, drug education, and referral to aftercare services. Also, individuals enrolled in the mental health court located in Joshua Tree receive outpatient mental health treatment services from the Hi-Desert Medical Center (HDMC).
