The Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department is licensed by the Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) to provide outpatient substance abuse treatment, and SAS also coordinates with community-based agencies to best implement prevention and intervention goals for youth and families.  


  • Substance Abuse Services (SAS) conducts a comprehensive Psychosocial Assessment utilizing the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) to determine the presence and severity of Substance Use Disorders allowing for precision in service delivery.  
  • The Substance Abuse Prevention Program (SAPP) and the Drug Awareness Prevention Program (DAPP) are educational workshops designed for youth who have early onset of substance use disorders. The goal is to educate participants on the dangers of drug use, misuse and abuse, and the process of behavior change. The educational workshop is held once a month on Saturdays.
  • The Alcohol and Other Drug Counseling Group (AOD) is a substance use prevention and intervention service that provides education related to substance use for youth and parents. The AOD program is designed for youth who have been identified with a higher level of need. Group sessions are held on Thursdays from 5:30pm to 6:30pm in Arcola and Richmond.  
  • Individual Substance Abuse Counseling (ISAC) intervenes with youth who present with a consistent record of substance use or have repeated substance use even after completing an initial program. The individual counseling service focuses on education, decision-making, relapse prevention, identifying personal triggers, cravings, recognizing the consequences of use, and the impact of use on family dynamics.
  • The Supportive Counseling Program (SCP) is designed for youth diagnosed with mild substance use disorders. The treatment program provides both group education and counseling services (individual and family) to improve the youth's understanding of the dangers related to continued substance use.
  • The Intensive Counseling Program (ICP) is designed for youth diagnosed with moderate to severe substance use disorders. The program is an intensive treatment service and focuses on substance use recovery and relapse prevention.
