What is The MOST Program
We are a state licensed program, operating out of several locations across Orange County.
Substance abuse programs routinely fail their chemically addicted client/offenders by inadequately testing them for alcohol and drug use. Random and ‘suspicion’ testing rarely deters the compulsion to drink or use drugs, even when serious consequences for rendering positive results are at hand. When a client/offender figures out the testing protocols and program schedules, these tests are very easy to beat. Alcohol and substance dependent client/offenders will continue to drink and use because they have a compulsive disorder. They also tend to be oppositional and defiant in nature and gain the added bonus of ‘getting over’ on an authority source. Clients/offenders are referred to treatment programs for help regarding these issues. When the client/offender is able to complete a substance abuse program while drinking or using between treatment events, the program has miserably failed the client/offender. The programs and the system have become enablers.
