The Berkeley Day Report Center is a treatment alternative to incarceration for nonviolent offenders whose substance abuse problems have led to legal involvement. Supervision and treatment services provided by the BDRC will accomplish two goals: 1) To provide much needed substance abuse treatment and drug screening which is not available in the Eastern Regional Jail to appropriate offenders 2) To reduce taxpayer cost associated with incarceration. The cost to incarcerate an offender in the Eastern Regional Jail is $1500/month. The cost to place an offender in treatment at the BDRC is $475/mo.
It is the mission of the Berkeley Day Report Center (BDRC) to provide a viable, cost-effective alternative to incarceration for appropriate offenders. In partnership with law enforcement, the judiciary, government agencies and community resources, the Berkeley Day Report Center will reduce criminal recidivism rates by providing participants with the opportunity to learn about his/her behavior, acquire needed skills to address problematic issues, and develop life tools to ensure long-term success while enhancing community safety.
The philosophy of the BDRC is to change behavioral patterns among targeted offenders by providing structured, evidence based individualized treatment and accountability. This approach increases motivation and empowers the participant with the functional skills needed for a productive life free of crime and chemical dependencies.
The objectives of the BDRC are to reduce repeat offenses and probation revocations through facilitating change in behavior patterns of the offenders who participate. The program is designed to provide a productive alternative to prison for nonviolent offenders. Offenders learn that a lifestyle of recovery is possible and that success is achievable.
Eligible participants referred to the BDRC are required to report to the program in accordance with their approved daytime or evening schedules. BDRC staff work closely with each referral source to address each offender’s individual needs. Case Managers at the BDRC conduct the appropriate risk/needs assessment and an individualized treatment plan is developed and implemented according to identified needs and abilities. Participants are also subject to random drug and alcohol testing
Random drug screening is required for all participants referred to the BDRC.
Each participant must call in to the system daily and enter a unique call in code, which then informs the participant if a drug screen is required on that day. If a drug screen is required, the participant must report to the BDRC 30 minutes prior to closing in order to provide a urine specimen for testing. All drug screens are observed by staff and Redwood Laboratories is utilized for confirmation of positive tests.
Any participants who attempt to defeat a drug screen by “flushing” their systems or by using a device are held accountable by law enforcement. Participants who continue to test positive for illegal substances are required to attend a higher level of treatment including inpatient treatment/detox.

IOP – Intensive Outpatient Program (12 weeks, 36 sessions, 9 hours/week of group therapy, 1 hour/week of individual therapy)
-IOP follows an evidenced based curriculum called Seeking Safety. The goal of this program is to help clients move beyond trauma and substance abuse.

Seeking Safety focuses on coping skills and psychoeducation and has five key principles: (1) safety as the overarching goal (helping clients attain safety in their relationships, thinking, behavior, and emotions); (2) integrated treatment (working on both Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse at the same time); (3) a focus on ideals to counteract the loss of ideals in both PTSD and substance abuse; (4) four content areas: cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, and case management; and (5) attention to clinician processes (helping clinicians work on countertransference, self-care, and other issues). IOP is led by a Master’s level therapist.
