In an effort to provide a continuum of services to defendants, the department contracts with area agencies and individuals. Frequent referrals are made to counselors, physicians, agencies and organizations for educational, vocational, residential, medical, mental health, substance abuse, financial, and legal aid services. Offenders who have not been referred to services and believe they need help should contact their officer immediately at (979) 361-4410. As funds allow, the department may pay for services for indigent offenders and may pay a portion of services for others in need. In order for the officer to determine whether the department may pay for services, the Income Assessment Form must be completed. If the department provides services at no or reduced cost and assessments, group meetings, or sessions are missed, the department will no longer fund any of the services.
