Mission Statement

To enhance community safety by reducing criminal recidivism due to substance abuse and mental illness through the provision of behavioral health treatment and related services under criminal justice supervision as an alternative to incarceration.



This site is dedicated to the memories of Dianne Granlund, former Deputy Managing Director for Criminal Justice Population Management - City of Philadelphia, and Linda Mathers, former Special Projects Director - Philadelphia Adult Probation and Parole Department. We fondly remember their dedication, human compassion and wonderful sense of humor in developing and implementing the Forensic Intensive Recovery program. Without their leadership, knowledge and intense desire to make a difference in the lives of those suffering from addiction, mental illness and related criminal behavior patterns, this program would not have been as successful in helping people lead drug-free and crime-free lives. We are forever grateful to have had the privilege of their camaraderie and warm company.
