The mission of the Recovery Pathfinder Program is to provide support and guidance for section 35 civilly committed males as they begin the process of recovery, health and wellness in the community. This is achieved by linking program participants to services that help them achieve their goals for recovery post-release; by introducing an integrated support network such as referrals to transitional support services such as treatment for substance use disorders, mental health, medical treatment, housing, and financial assistance that support their goals for recovery post-release.
