Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
The upscale West Los Angeles California sober living and transitional aftercare residence announced this week its ongoing expansion of full-scope legal liaison and support services. Geared for men ages 25 and up, the expanded platform of services now covers the full spectrum of legal issues, from misdemeanor to felony matters involving drug and/or alcohol related offenses.
Located near the Culver City and West LA boundary, with close proximity to Santa Monica, Venice and Marina Del Rey, Herbert House often works with the LAX/La Cienega and downtown courts, as well as San Fernando Valley, Southbay and several others. This recent expansion however, offers a far more in-depth documenting, support and reporting service for residents facing probation and pending arraignment, trial and even sentencing dates. Charges most commonly involve DUI/DWI, drug possession, possession with intent, etc.
The goal of the new expanded program is, to essentially evoke a greater sense trust a comfort among prosecutors and judges faced with the prospect of extending leniency and/or deferred judgments. Says Herbert House executive director, Jace Horwitz, “Courts and prosecutors have become substantially more educated over recent years on the importance of recovery vs. incarceration. The objective is to maximize client accountability, progress and documentation to where judges and prosecuting DA’s are able to most comfortably justify deferred sentences and other forms if leniency.”
Among the many components comprising the expanded court liaison services, most prominent is the stringent day-to-day activity & recovery based documentation. In essence, this component entails a thorough accounting of the client’s activities and whereabouts on a 24/7 basis. It goes a step further in that it creates and monitors a hybrid set of guidelines as set forth by both, the courts as well as Herbert House staff. The entirety of the program is broad to the point of managing all facets of the client’s legal or probationary obligations.
Considered as being among Los Angeles, California’s more affordable upscale sober living homes and transitional housing options, Herbert House has been in operation since 1996 and was intimately involved in the early creation of the Southern California Sober Living Coalition. While its standard monthly rates start as low as $1500 for shared and $2500 for private accommodations, there are nominal added costs for those utilizing expanded court liaison & support services due to its in-depth nature. Says Horwitz in closing, “The goal in these legal matters is two-fold; One, averting the possibility of incarceration as well as felony marks on the client’s legal history, and two, and equally if not more important, to parlay what might otherwise appear as a negative scenario into an event that optimally catapults the client into a meaningful, long-term run in recovery.”
