Substance Abuse Treatment & Support

The U.S. Probation Office for the District of Vermont strives to procure and maintain quality contract treatment services for federal defendants and offenders who are ordered by the court to participate in substance abuse, mental health or sex offender-specific treatment. Our goal is to work closely with treatment providers to identify the most appropriate services, and to administer them in a fiscally responsible manner, in an effort to both reduce recidivism, and to address the treatment needs of this population. Together we can make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve.
