Client Story 1
This client engaged in the Reintegration Program while incarcerated at McLennan County Jail and was released into the community in January 2017. The client initially struggled with the ability to maintain stability with his recovery. He slipped on one occasion and engaged in smoking crack cocaine over the weekend. He and his wife immediately reached out to the McLennan County Reintegration Program for support, and the client accepted placement into a local treatment program for medically supervised withdrawal and treatment.
The Reintegration Program then assisted the client with obtaining his Texas Identification so that he would be able to find employment. The client was provided an employment referral to Total Placement Solutions, which then assisted the client in obtaining full time employment with local employer Waco Composites on March 21, 2017.
The Reintegration Program provided the client with new work boots for his job to help him achieve success in the new work environment. Currently, the client has successfully maintained his employment with Waco Composite and is being provided weekly case management services through the Reintegration Program to help him continue to be successful. The client has not been re-arrested since his release into the McLennan County community.
