Thinking for a Change for Justice-Involved Adults

Similar to the in-custody program, Thinking for a Change is offered in Marin City, San Rafael and Novato. Thinking for a Change is a cognitive behavioral therapeutic curriculum designed to facilitate behavior change through addressing the underlying thought processes that precede behavior. It is recognized as an evidence-based practice for reducing criminal behavior and substance use, and is designed and will be offered in two group sessions per week for a period of 14-18 weeks.

Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS).  As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
