HISTORY

 

 

OPTIONS was established in 1994 to served local juvenile offenders of a serious and chronic nature. In 2007, OPTIONS began services to reduce the risk of youth getting into trouble with the legal system, school or with substance abuse, and to encourage them to become productive, respectful, and responsible members of the community. Initially, a risk needs assessment is administered to youth referred to OPTIONS. This identifies risk and protective factors from: family, school, community/peer, alcohol/drugs, mental health, aggression, violence, attitude, skills, employment/free time. Youth with moderate to high risk levels can then be referred to programs at OPTIONS or another local agency for services designed to reduce identified risk levels.
