Identifying the appropriate supervision and case plans for clients requires analysis and data that can be difficult without the proper methods and tools. Our alternative screenings simplify decisions and support workflows to lower recidivism rates through more effective rehabilitation. You’ll gain access to a wide ranging library of screening tools that will promote change through a proven, evidence-based approach.

What they do

With access to more than 25 nationally recognized alternative screening tools covering past trauma, drug and alcohol use, motivation levels, sexual and domestic violence, criminal thinking, and more, you can address the offense-specific risk and needs of individuals involved in the criminal justice system.

The library of Alternative Screening tools can be configured through Security Groups, so staff and stakeholders can make better decisions to help prevent adverse experiences before they occur and protect against poor outcomes.

This allows for seamless development of individualized case plans that target assessed needs, and execution of court-ordered conditions.

What it makes possible

Successful treatment and supervision are dependent on individuals receiving proper programming targeting the most impactful criminogenic needs and monitoring risk. By applying the correct screenings, you develop and revise better supervision strategies, treatment plans, and determine who should receive specialized recidivism-reduction oversight, as well as insight into potential violations and positive progress.

Clients are also more receptive to plans that are designed around their needs and situations. When an agency makes informed decisions at every step, justice-involved individuals, case managers, judicial officers, and community members have greater confidence in its ability to provide positive and lasting results.
