The Intensive Treatment Alternatives Program (ITAP) offers an alternative to incarceration for people who have been arrested for felony or misdemeanor charges where alcohol or drugs played a major role in their arrest. Instead of serving time in jail, the person is completes outpatient day treatment for addiction, with the goal of working to avoid repeat offenses.
ITAP also serves as an outpatient day rehab program for people who are not involved in the criminal justice system.
For additional questions about ITAP, please contact the ITAP Coordinator at 845-486-3680.
