Broward Sheriff’s Office Chooses Welligent

Broward Sheriff’s Office of Broward County, Florida has chosen Welligent V8 as it’s Electronic Health Record (EHR). The Broward Sheriff’s Office Drug Court Treatment Division serves close to 800 clients daily. The Drug Court Treatment Division has two programs providing diversion from jail or prison for persons with substance related conditions. The original Pre-Trial Intervention Program was designed as an alternative to traditional incarceration for first time, non-violent criminal offenders who are charged with the purchase or possession of a controlled substance and/or other substance abuse related offense. The grant funded Diversionary Treatment Program (DTP) was designed to divert adjudicated felons with substance related conditions from returning to prison. Both programs are a minimum of one-year of treatment with the goal of breaking the cycle of addiction and criminal justice involvement by using a variety of individualized treatment services to restore the participant as a productive member of society. The Drug Court and Treatment Programs are accredited by CARF International, Inc.

The Drug Court Treatment Division is licensed to provide intervention and outpatient services through the State of Florida Department of Children and Families. Participants
are referred to community sober support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, Smart Recovery and the like in an effort to establish recovery
supportive bonds prior to treatment discharge.

BSO’s Drug Court Treatment Division’s programs have three phases or levels that utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to substance abuse treatment, encompassing both
traditional and innovative interventions. The programs offer:

  • Diagnostic and assessment services
  • Orientation groups
  • Education groups
  • Group & individual therapy
  • Fellowship meetings
  • Treatment interventions
  • Drug and alcohol screening
  • Educational/vocational referrals
  • Relapse prevention
  • Case management
  • Psychiatric counseling
  • Family orientation
  • Transitional housing
