For Returning Citizens
This page contains resources to help returning citizens in their reentry process (and can also be used by family members who are seeking resources for loved ones). Please click on contact us is you see a resource that is outdated or unavailable, and please let us know if you have found a helpful resource that we should add.
A helpful way to start finding resources is by searching the yellow pages or the internet so that you can seek resources that are near you. Searching for the name of your county is often helpful. Your county might have social service websites (like a county drug and alcohol or mental health agency).
If you are looking for healthcare or mental health services and have insurance, you can also contact your insurance company for assistance.
If you are seeking assistance from a psychologist, you can find one in your area at this website:
