SASCA – San Diego

Services Offered
  • Case Management

Our SASCA (Substance Abuse Services Coordinating Agency) program serves parolees who have completed an in-prison program by offering the opportunity to continue substance abuse treatment after they are released on parole. Based on a complete assessment of the client’s needs, we coordinate his or her placement in an appropriate community-based treatment program. We then work with the client, treatment provider, and parole agents to help ensure our client’s success in treatment.

Substance abuse treatment services are funded for six (6) months upon the individual’s release from prison to a community-based substance abuse program. After that time, SASCA provides an additional year (12 months) of follow-up case management services.

Program Services:

SASCA services include in-prison/jail assessment, referral to a community-based treatment program, and follow-up services that include:
  • Case management services developed directly with the clients;
  • Transportation from the in-prison substance abuse treatment program (SAT) to the community treatment facility;
  • Residential placement, sober-living and outpatient services;
  • Comprehensive re-entry services to help the participant successfully reintegrate into his or her community;
  • Up to 180 days of aftercare services.

Eligibility Requirements:

Our program serves men and women who have completed an in-prison SAT program, have been assigned by the Board of Prison Hearings (BPH) to an in-custody drug treatment program (ICDTP) and/or are released from custody to Parole Region IV. (Parole Region IV includes San Diego,
San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside and Imperial Counties.)


Referrals to SASCA come from the Board of Prison Hearings and in-prison SAT programs. Based on availability, SASCA participants are sometimes referred directly by their Parole Agent of Record.
