If the court grants the Veteran’s application for the Supervised Diversionary Program, they are released to the custody of CSSD to be put into a program that provides the community supervision, treatment and services the Veteran needs. If the Veteran finishes the program successfully, the charges against them are dismissed by the court.

Pre-Trial Drug Education and Community Service Program (DECSP): DECSP can be used by people charged with violating Connecticut drug possession or drug paraphernalia laws. Once the DECSP program is applied for, the court file is sealed. CSSD will investigate applicants to determine if the DECSP is appropriate.
