ARC Community Services is a private, non-profit agency specializing in welfare services for women. ARC provides case management and treatment to women referred by the Dane County courts in connection with a drug or alcohol-related offense to address their substance use disorder. The programs help women avoid greater involvement in the criminal justice system. The Diversion Program offers intensive case management, assistance in obtaining safe housing, job preparedness, assistance securing available benefits and a Cognitive Interventions group. The case management programs provide structure, strengths-based case plan development and monitoring of the woman’s overall functioning in the community. It also measures compliance with treatment requirements through weekly staffings at the treatment location or more frequent telephone contact with the treatment provider to provide a seamless delivery of services. In addition, the programs include wraparound meetings for women receiving treatment in one of the ARC treatment programs and, if available, at other treatment locations.
