Division Spotlight – Pathways Diversion Program
The Pathways Diversion Program recently completed its first year of operations.
The Pathways Diversion Program is a pre-indictment program that engages with individuals immediately upon release from jail. This program provides the opportunity for participants to have felony drug charges go away without ever being filed. In exchange, participants engage in substance abuse treatment and remain lawful for a period of 6 months. In its first year, Pathways has engaged with 27 participants and currently has a 50% graduation rate. In the next year, Pathways expects to expand eligibility requirements and the number of participants.
