Welcome to the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs

About Our Services

Before sending your e-mail to the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs' (ADP) Office of Criminal Justice Collaboration (OCJC), please consider the following:.

OCJC is responsible for state-level Offender Treatment Program (OTP) administration. We receive a wide variety of inquiries from a broad range of parties, some with a personal stake in OTP services, as well as from many other interested parties. In carrying out its administrative responsibilities, OCJC typically provides guidance and advice to its closest partners, the 58 county OTP lead agency coordinators. Although this website's OTP E-Mailbox feature exists as a convenience to others, there are limitations on the types of services we can provide, particularly to those asking for advice of a legal nature or for interpretations of OTP eligibility statutes.

While OCJC administers statewide funding and ensures statewide-level program accountability, each of the 58 county jurisdictions is individually responsible for the local administration of their county's unique OTP services.

As a convenience to counties handling cases in which a county resident has been convicted of offenses in another county but will receive OTP treatment in his or her county of residence, OCJC maintains a continuously-updated listing of local PC 1210 treatment assessment contacts.

Please take a moment to review these special notes about our responses to your inquiries...

  • ... to current or potential OTP clients, their families, or friends

    ADP is not able to provide legal advice or guidance to individuals regarding current criminal justice charges or cases. Similarly, it cannot provide definitive responses to questions of OTP eligibility involving either real or hypothetical situations. Questions on personal criminal justice matters should be referred to one's own private attorney, court-appointed attorney, or probation or parole officer, depending on the questions or circumstances.

  • ... to reporters or representatives of media outlets

    Responses to inquiries from the media must be submitted directly to ADP's Public Information Officer, Suzi Rupp, at (916) 323-1706, or srupp@adp.ca.gov.

  • ... to researchers, academics, or others with questions about OTP outcomes, data, and related matters

    Published reports on OTP which have been prepared by ADP or under ADP contract can be reviewed on the Reports and Documents page. Inquiries regarding the content of these reports, subsequent reports to be published, or other data, findings, conclusions, should be directed to ADP's Office of Applied Research and Analysis (OARA). Please download and complete a Research Services (Data) Request Form and then either fax it (916-322-7117) or e-mail it to OARA.
