Our CSOs (probation officers) are the best! Working at Harris County CSCD is rewarding because we are #restoringhope daily. Here is an email we just received from one of our clients - specifically written to CSO Laura Archer.

I just wanted you to know I am very thankful that you were my probation officer through this process. I never told you that the reason I always gave you a hard time is that so you would give me a hard time and make sure I ALWAYS DID WHAT WAS RIGHT. If that makes any sense to you. I appreciate all the kindness and patience you have showed. I will be forever grateful to you. T.

Our CSO's do a great job daily #restoringhope and #changinglives. Here's a note from CSO Trina Sykes-Hoskins about one of her special focused clients! #CSCDcares

My client Le is the mother of 7 children and she has not missed beat in her protecting her recovery program. She did a fantastic job in our outpatient SAFPF program and doing all this while helping to home school 4 of her 7 kids, caring for elderly parents and the many hats she wears as a wife and a mother. She has maintain consistency and 100 % sobriety throughout her participation in the six months of outpatient. Early on, in the program, the client shared her effort to participate in NA forums during the COVID-19. Self- help meetings are not mandatory and we encourage our clients to voluntarily participate in meetings as part of their own substance abuse recovery program. Although, this is a difficult time for many of our clients having had to adjust to our “new norm” many of the changes that has come with COVID-19, Le did not let COVID get in the way of what she wanted to accomplish. This client is true example how resiliency and self- motivation can overcome addiction.

So proud of her consistent efforts to protect her recovery program and the SAFPF team was a vital part of helping her make positive changes.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone from all of us here at CSCD. #CSCDcares #RestoringHope

Mr. C. reported using drugs as a way to cope with the pain of losing his father. He told us his drug use was 1-5 marijuana blunts daily and 1 ounce of promethazine/codeine syrup mixed with a cold drink daily. C. tested positive for THC once in July, but was able to regain sobriety and maintain it until he successfully completed treatment. He told us he is MNOTIVATED to stay sober so he can be free to take care of his family and kids and build a future. Mr. C. says relaxing by meditating and managing his emotions are two coping skills that he uses to manage risky situations and feelings. He has learned patience because he has been patient and focused and 3 years ago he would not have been able to keep himself out of risky situations. Mr. C says he is now more MOTIVATED to complete his goals and his family has noticed so he knows he has grown. He says his positive support comes from his uncle, pastor and mother who pray for him and hold him accountable. #changinglives #restoringhope #CSCDcares

Emails from clients like this NEVER get old. We are #changinglives and #restoringhope daily because #CSCDcares. Thanks you Lucila Molina for the great work you do!

Hello Mr. Skidmore

I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what an amazing CSO I have. This is actually my third time under Harris County Supervision, with the first two times being unsuccessfully completed and resulting in jail time. This time however, I am doing WAY better and a big reason why I am doing so well is Officer Lucila Molina. She has gone way above and beyond what is required. Her genuine care for the people on her caseload is awesome. She has a bright and optimistic demeanor that really makes it easy for you to open up to her and also makes you want to do well in her program. She is very motivating and let's her clients know that she's not there only to throw you in jail, she wants to see you succeed and genuinely wants your lives to get better and the way she projects that can not be faked it really comes from her heart. I have a great job, a roof over my head, my parents are proud of me for the first time in many years and we talk all the time, me and my daughter have gotten close again who lives with my parents and turned 10 years old today, and repairing my relationship with her has been so amazing words cannot explain. For the first time in 3 years I'm not in jail for her birthday and for the first time in 6 years I'm clean and sober for her birthday and had the money to buy her some beautiful new Michael Jordan basketball shoes and a few other gifts she's gonna love. I owe all this to making the right corrections in my life, and this may sound odd, I doubt you guys hear this very often but I am so glad that I'm on probation it has really kept me accountable and helpful in teaching me how to live a better quality of life and I am very grateful to my CSO for being such a positive influence in my life and for taking the time to show she cares and making me feel like I can complete this program successfully and my life will be all the better for it.

Thank you Officer Molina,
-David

CSCD employee Nicole C shares this success story! We are #restoringhope because #CSCDcares

When I hear the word success, I think about Lance. Lance is a SAFPF client who recognizes and has admitted he is powerless over his addiction. He was released from residential treatment in March after previous attempts of being clean in other programs. The client first stated that he can't do residential anymore so he would like to do what he needs to do to stay clean. The client is currently enrolled in treatment at Career and Recovery where his counselor has nothing but positive things to say about his progress. Lance is now working two jobs to take care of his child support payments. Having the opportunity to assist with his family has made him even more positive and motivated. Lance also continues to communicate how he does not have the need or want to be around old peers because there is nothing that can take him away from his family. Recognizing this alone and putting his family first is a success alone.

The discussion around criminal justice reform in Harris County is complex and often heated. Stakeholders disagree on what that change should look like and how to go about it. The issue of how to handle repeat offenders is a major sticking point.

Happy Monday,

CSCD employee Keith Liles just received a call from Michelle M. She just completed her probation last week, and wanted to let us know that she just accepted a position with the D.A.R.E. program working with kids, which is her passion. She is thrilled to be able to do something with her heart and experiences and not just her education.

Michelle is that perfect case where getting mental health stabilized and the client compliant with medications and buying into the need for them. plus her desire to get clean, yields success.

Keith says, "High fives for the team who stood by her through some difficult times."

One of our CSOs received a phone call from a former client Mr. Miguel. He was at DDRP about two years ago. Miguel wanted to express his gratitude. We are happy to report that he is the manager of a car shop and clean and sober. He wanted to let us know that he drives by DDRP from time to time to remind himself not to return to his old ways. He is very thankful for the services that he received and he is sober because of CSCD's DDRP. #restoringhope #changinglives #CSCDcares #publicsafety

From Keith Liles, "Today we had four STAR DRUG COURT graduates, two early terminations, cars filled with family and friends, and LOTS of tears. It was hot, one client was 45 minutes late, the parking lot attendant tried to chase us out of the lot, but the smiles on the clients faces were worth it all!" #restoringhope #changinglives #CSCDcares #publicsafety

STAR COURT CAR PARADE

We didn't let the pandemic stop us from having our STAR DRUG COURT graduation. By the time this week is over, 14 graduates and 11 clients who early terminated from probation, will have received their certificates!

Each of these clients worked through a variety of traumatic and life issues while in STAR. In addition to dealing with sobriety issues and the expectation of getting a job or attending school, we had clients in this group that had extenuating medical maladies, dealing with the murder of a fiancee, working to get children back from CPS, reestablishing connection with family, death of peers due to relapse, eviction, and birth.

There were many tears shed today.

To anyone on probation or considering probation, If you truly want a better life than work this process. I came into the system trying to cheat it. Thru the course of definite failure on that front, i simply tried the concepts applied. Thankfully, I lost the criminal mentality and fear of law enforcement. So to all, if you try to do this, you will be very successful. Former criminal but redeemed man.
