What to expect at DEEP

• The 20-hour Risk Reduction Program is for Adults, 21 years or older.
• Participants will complete a preliminary assessment instrument designed to screen for risk factors for substance abuse problems. Individuals found to be at higher risk will be referred to a DEEP- certified community-based service provider for a clinical substance abuse evaluation to determine if there is evidence of a problem that needs treatment. If there is a substance abuse problem evident, the individual will be referred to counseling and required to complete the prescribed treatment services, which are determined according to DEEP's regulatory guidelines and the needs of the individual.
• The DEEP treatment program must be completed in full before you are eligible for early restoration.
