Planning for transition from Adobe Mountain School to the community begins at the time the youth's individualized Continuous Case Plan (CCP) is first developed. Adobe Mountain School staff work closely with Community Corrections staff to ensure that upon release to parole the treatment, programming, health, and education needs of the youth will continue to be met. When placed on conditional liberty, the youth’s treatment and programs are extended into the community. Parole status consists of community supervision and community services.
Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections (ADJC) Youth Transition Specialists provide youth with transitional education services and help the youth reintegrate into an educational system that best fits their individual needs and strengths. In addition they assist in referring for services and treatment, which may include individual, group, and family counseling. They also provide ties with existing community social services. This increases the number of youth who can be successfully placed at home, rather than in out-of-home placement, and links families with services. ADJC also partners with public and private entities to provide a variety of additional transitional services to youth in the community. Some of these partners include:
