The Restoration Center - Substance Abuse Treatment Programs
Homeless individuals struggling with alcohol and drugs and persons experiencing severe mental illness can now find help at the newly constructed detox and substance use treatment center known as the Restoration Center.
The Restoration Center serves the general public including countless homeless person in our community with a wide range of substance abuse services. Working in close partnership with community partners county wide the Restoration Center continues to set the standard for integrated care offering a wide range of treatment options and residential placement.
The Restoration Center has proven from its very early days to be cost effective. In the first 180 days in operation, it has served 395 homeless individuals who have been diverted from jail for a cost savings of $766,530 to the taxpayers through Dec. 31. The sobering unit has admitted 1,627 individuals in the last 162 days. Had it not been for the Restoration Center, 1,158 of them would have been admitted into the municipal court detention area at a cost of $2,657,610 in this short period.
An additional $703,500 was saved when law enforcement officers took 469 people to the Restoration Center instead of to hospital emergency rooms prior to incarceration. Moreover, officers are spending less time in ER waiting rooms, thereby allowing them to return to community policing. See the corresponding cost savings report immediately on the other side of this page.
The Restoration Center continues to merge critical services and improve access and treatment available for our homeless with increasing success. Through the dedicated efforts of our state and local community champions who recognized that these persons were inappropriately overcrowding our jails and hospital emergency rooms, this new facility that includes sobering and crisis care, will allow thousands of persons to recover and restore their lives.
