Female Offender Treatment Program

Overview

BACKGROUND

The Female Offender Treatment Project (FOTP) was implemented in Fiscal Year (FY) 1992-93 and is now in its 21st year of providing program services. The program is funded by the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) and is supported by the federal Substance Abuse Prevention & Treatment (SAPT) Block Grant. FOTP provides residential and outpatient alcohol and drug treatment and recovery services to female parolees in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino.

  • The program is administered jointly by ADP and the county alcohol and drug program office in each of the four counties.
  • Local Assistance funds for FOTP in FY 2012-13 are $637,190.
  • ADP allocates these funds to the participating counties through each county’s Negotiated Net Amount Contract.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

  • Improve female parolee outcomes as evidenced by fewer drug-related revocations and related criminal violations.
  • Support the parolee’s reintegration into society by encouraging a clean and sober lifestyle.
  • Reduce State General Fund costs for incarceration and parole supervision.
