The Howard County Alcohol and Drug Services Program is an integral part of the Probation Department. The Howard County Alcohol and Drug Services Program provide substance abuse evaluations, referrals, monitoring of clients convicted of alcohol and drug related offenses, and basic substance abuse education.

After the completion of the substance abuse evaluation, the probation officer develops an individualized service contract for the offender. This contract will includes a referral to a substance abuse education, treatment program and peer support. The probation officer will then monitor the offender’s compliance with said contract.
We are a certified program by Indiana Court Services. Supervision probation officers are Certified Substance Abuse Management Specialist (CSAMS) credential.
The Court Alcohol and Drug Program utilizes the PRIME For Life curriculum in its substance abuse education program. The PRIME For Life course is 12 hours in length.
