Telecare PROPS (Post Release Outpatient Program Services) program (also referred to as AB109) is a Full Service Partnership (FSP). This county-contracted program is the result of a collaborative effort between Probation and Behavioral Health Services, and is designed using the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model. The PROPS  program serves people being released from jail who are supervised by the probation department as result of the Assembly Bill 109. This program exists to help people live successfully in the community and make strides towards their hopes and dreams, and  achieve their personal recovery goals, while avoiding a return to the criminal justice system and unnecessary psychiatric hospitalization.

Recovery Model

Building on traditional ACT standards, Telecare has created a recovery-centered experience for people served. Telecare’s approach is based on a belief that recovery can happen. Programs and staff strive to create an environment where a person can choose to recover. By connecting to each individual’s core self and trusting it to guide the way, it is possible to awaken the desire to embark on the recovery journey.
