“As the Facility Director, I have worked closely with Liberty staff for many years. I can attest firsthand to the very high quality of their clinical programming, their responsiveness to facility needs, and to their diligence in monitoring and improving their performance. Through their innovations, they have been able to recruit and retain highly trained, motivated, and credentialed staff.”
State Treatment and Detention Facility
“Liberty’s continuing commitment to delivering the highest level of clinical care and treatment has been crucial to the viability of the jail-based restoration of competency model and its continuing expansion in the state … I strongly recommend their work and dedication to provide an outstanding level of quality and service to their customers.”
State Department of Hospitals
“Liberty is a highly valued partner, committed to delivering this innovative programming to our mentally ill inmates who require mental health treatment and medications … Since implementation, inmates can enter the [restoration of competency] program soon after being found incompetent and most often are restored and discharged from the program in the time that they would have remained on the waitlist for the hospital admission.”
