About

The Berkeley Day Report Center is a treatment alternative to incarceration for nonviolent offenders whose substance abuse problems have led to legal involvement. Supervision and treatment services provided by the BDRC will accomplish two goals: 1) To provide much needed substance abuse treatment and drug screening which is not available in the Eastern Regional Jail to appropriate offenders 2) To save taxpayers money. The cost to incarcerate an offender in the Eastern Regional Jail is $1500/month. The cost to place an offender in treatment at the BDRC is $475/mo.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Berkeley Day Report Center (BDRC) to provide a viable, cost-effective alternative to incarceration for appropriate offenders. In partnership with law enforcement, the judiciary, government agencies and community resources, the Berkeley Day Report Center will reduce criminal recidivism rates by providing participants with the opportunity to learn about his/her behavior, acquire needed skills to address problematic issues, and develop life tools to ensure long-term success while enhancing community safety.

Philosophy

The philosophy of the BDRC is to change behavioral patterns among targeted offenders by providing structured, individualized treatment and accountability. This approach increases motivation and empowers the participant with the functional skills needed for a productive life free of crime and chemical dependencies.

General Overview

The objectives of the BDRC are to reduce repeat offenses and probation revocations through facilitating change in behavior patterns of the offenders who participate. The program is designed to provide a productive alternative to prison for nonviolent offenders. Offenders learn that a lifestyle of recovery is possible and that success is achievable.

Eligible participants sentenced to the BDRC are required to report to the program in accordance with their approved daytime or evening schedules. BDRC staff work closely with the referral sources to address each offender’s individual needs. Case Managers at the BDRC conduct the appropriate risk/needs assessment and an individualized treatment plan is developed and implemented according to identified needs and abilities. Participants are also subject to random drug and alcohol testing.
