TAMAR is a State funded program offered to women who are detained in Caroline and Dorchester detention centers. These women have been identified, or self-identified, as having a history of physical and/or sexual abuse and a recent treatment history for a mental health condition, as well as a drug use/abuse disorder. Individuals eligible to participate are encouraged to voluntarily join the program with the knowledge that participation does not in itself reduce jail time.
- Program services are delivered by a licensed, Master’s level clinician who is responsible for providing bio-psycho-educational treatment in accordance with the TAMAR program manual.
- Case management services are to be conducted by an individual with a minimum degree of baccalaureate and provide coordination of services while the consumer is incarcerated, as well as development of an aftercare plan with the consumer in making community referrals, advocating “mainstream” services, and establishing communication for monitoring the receipt of treatment upon re-entry to the community.
- Ensure the education of detention center staff members, community mental health providers, and appropriate stakeholders with regard to the needs of trauma survivors.
- Maintain communication with courts, parole and probation, and community-based providers to provide information about TAMAR.
