The GAINS Center estimates approximately 1.1 million persons with serious mental illness are admitted annually to U.S. jails. Among these admissions, 72 percent also meet criteria for co-occurring substance use disorder. Rates of substance use disorders among prisoners are more than four times that of the general population, and 15 percent of male and 30 percent of female inmates recently admitted to jail have a serious mental illness. This show explores what services are critical to include in justice intervention, namely: treatment and recovery efforts for people in criminal and juvenile justice systems with mental and substance use disorders; family involvement; recovery support; peer counseling by people who have successfully completed drug court; problem solving court programs; and, education and training for those returning home. Panelists discuss new programs to help people before incarceration, interventions for at-risk populations, and how to improve the juvenile justice system to ensure the provision of appropriate support.

For me this is personal. Last year my family lost my nephew Ian to opioid addiction. I don’t want anyone to go through what my family did. But I know far too many of people, their families, and friends are struggling with opioid addiction right now.
I want you to know you aren’t alone. That’s why I would love for you to join me in this conversation to hear what experts in the field are saying, and to ask your own questions about this crisis. Please join me and bring your friends!
Thank you, Frederick County Public Defenders office for inviting me to your staffing. We will make a powerful collaboration. I believe the judicial system works well when it is done right. Substance abuse and criminal behaviors can be treated and Brooks Behavioral Health Services, LLC is going to prove it. We just need the Criminal Justice System as a whole to believe and I think they can see the old way was not working. I appreciate the court system for welcoming BBHS with open arms. Words can not explain our gratitude.
You are invited to attend our open house this Saturday from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Come by to walk through our facility and see Brooks Behavioral Health Services for yourself. We will be giving away gift card prizes, food catered by Vocelli Pizza, music, and fun. Children are welcome.

Before we come together tonight for a time of prayer, I would like you to meditate on the word dominion. God gave us dominion over the earth at the beginning of mankind and we have been slowly making decisions as a people that allows the land and the earth to have dominion over us.
