Background:

Meridian has been providing behavioral health care services to the Alachua County Court Service Programs since 1999.  In order to be successful at treating the substance abuse and mental health conditions of the clients referred to Court Services, it is essential to have a complete continuum of care available to the participants. The continuum begins with the least restrictive mode of treatment (outpatient) and moves through intensive outpatient and eventually residential treatment if needed. This agreement provides for the middle spectrum of the continuum through the provision of intensive outpatient treatment along with mental health and methadone evaluations.
