Probation Camp Services

Probation Camp Services:

Probation Camp Services provides services to youth ages 16 to 20 who are residing in Los Angeles County Probation Camps; particularly youth with SED, SPMI, those with co-occurring substance disorders and/or those who have suffered trauma. Services in the Probation Camps are critical in assisting this population to reach their maximum potential and eventually transition back to the community rather than continue their involvement in the criminal justice system as adults. Multidisciplinary teams, including parent advocates, clinicians, Probation staff, and health staff provide an array of on-site treatment and support services that include the following:

  • Assessments
  • Substance-abuse treatment
  • Gender-specific treatment
  • Medication support
  • Aftercare planning
  • Transition services (including FSP and other intensive community-based mental health services)

A key component of the planned services is outreach and engagement to the incarcerated youth’s family providing transportation to the camps to ensure opportunities to participate in the youth’s treatment during camp placement and through the transition back into the community.
