Welcome to the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs

Parolee Services


Effective with the passage of the 2013-2014 Budget Act and associated legislation, the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) no longer exists as of July 1, 2013. All ADP programs and staff, except the Office of Problem Gambling, transferred to the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). Please visit the DHCS website. Read more...


In collaboration with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), ADP's Office of Criminal Justice Collaboration (OCJC) oversees the operations of the Parolee Services Network (PSN).

The PSN provides community alcohol and drug treatment and recovery services to parolees in 17 counties statewide. Programs provide up to 180 days of treatment and recovery services. The benefits of the program include the following:

  • Places parolees in appropriate alcohol and other drug treatment and recovery programs either from the community parole systems or immediately upon release from prison custody.
  • Improves parolee outcomes as evidenced by fewer drug-related revocations and related criminal violations.
  • Supports parolee reintegration into society by encouraging a clean and sober lifestyle.
  • Reduces State General Fund costs for incarceration and parole supervision.
