UPPER CUMBERLAND – In the coming months, the Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency (UCHRA) will open day reporting centers throughout the Upper Cumberland. These day reporting centers will facilitate parolees’ reintegration into the community by offering a combination of services and supervision.
Day reporting centers provide highly structured, non-residential alternatives that target high-risk and high-need individuals under supervision.
“Day reporting centers provide an alternative to incarceration, placing eligible participants in a structured and intensive outpatient setting,” said Mark Farley, UCHRA Executive Director. “Our day reporting center will serve three judicial districts including the 13th, 15th and 31st districts.”
The Community Corrections department of UCHRA will oversee the day reporting center program, providing supervision and services in 12 Upper Cumberland counties. The sentencing judge will review participant eligibility, assessing the need for alcohol and/or drug treatment and other designations deemed eligible and approved by the state.
UCHRA’s day reporting centers will offer a variety of programs and services designed to address rehabilitation, supervision, treatment, education, programming and re-entry services through a carefully designed curriculum that will include Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), Maintaining Independence and Sobriety through Systems Integration (MISSION), Victim Impact: Listen and Learn, Cognitive Behavioral Intervention Program, Anger Management for Substance Use Disorder and Mental Health Clients, the Matrix Model for Criminal Justice Settings, Living in Balance, Helping Men Recover Criminal – Justice Version, Helping Trauma Plus and Exploring Trauma Plus and a Co-occurring Disorders program.
Participants will also receive transportation and housing support from UCHRA’s Public Transportation team and the Upper Cumberland Development District’s Recovery2Work programs, respectively.
