Pathways to Diversion

October 22, 2020 1:24 PM

Madison Area Addiction Recovery Initiative

The Madison Area Addiction Recovery Initiative (MAARI) is a Bureau of Justice Assistance initiative that seeks to refer persons who overdose or are stopped for low-level, victimless offenses and offer them a referral to medication-assisted and behavioral drug treatment as an alternative to jail. No charges will be filed as long as the client meets program requirements as of six months after the incident. Absence of a criminal record improves clients' abilities to obtain housing and employment.

About MAARI

The MAARI program began on September 1, 2020. It is a 3 year grant-funded program. MAARI builds upon the successes of our original pre-arrest diversion program, MARI, which ran from September 1, 2017 to August 31, 2020.

Who is eligible?

The MAARI program targets Dane County residents who committed a non-violent, low-level crime that is connected to their addiction. People on probation are not eligible.

Immediate Access, Regardless of Insurance

MAARI participants have quick access to the services they need, from individual outpatient therapy to medication assisted therapy to group therapy with peer mentors and family programs, we can help.

Support

Participants are referred to counseling to complete assessment. Upon assessment they are assigned to a recovery coach who will assist the MAARI participant in developing and following through with a personal plan of what recovery looks like for them. The recovery coach acts as a bridge between treatment agencies and the recovery community by helping them find additional support by going to meetings and/or other outside support groups.

Types of Support:

  • Recovery Coaches
  • Personalized Recovery Plans
  • Connections with the Recovering Community
  • Support for 6 months
