The Correctional Treatment Board is a seven-member statewide board that was created pursuant to HB12-1310. This legislation consolidated the statewide substance-abuse treatment funding previously appropriated from the Drug Offender Surcharge cash fund, SB03-318 and HB10-1352 into the Correctional Treatment Cash Fund. The oversight bodies for each of those funds were consolidated into one statewide oversight board created to manage the disbursement of the treatment funds as well as address policy issues as they pertain to the effective treatment of offenders with substance-abuse and co-occurring disorders. The statewide board membership is comprised of representatives from:
- Colorado Department of Corrections – Kelly Messamore
Colorado Department of Public Safety - Jeanne Smith
- Colorado Division of Probation Services - Eric Philp
- Colorado Department of Human Services - Marc Condojani
- Colorado District Attorney's Council - Vacant
- Colorado State Public Defender's Office - Brian Connors
- County Sheriff's of Colorado - Undersheriff David Walcher
The legislation also created a local treatment board within each judicial district across the state to act in an advisory capacity to the statewide board. These local boards have representation from Parole, Probation, Community Corrections, District Attorney, Public Defender, local Sheriff, Drug Court and Juvenile services.
Statewide Board meetings are held every third Tuesday of the month at 710 Kipling Street, 3rd floor conference room. Minutes and other information will be posted here on the website. You can contact Board members through the Board staff member, Tia Mills. (720) 625-5770. Tia.email@example.com.
