Community Service Set-up Instructions

If at any time you have questions for court-ordered community service, we are here to help you. These are the quickest ways to reach one of our staff members to assist you:

STEP 1 – Your Probation Officer needs to submit a Referral to RMS

STEP 2 – Complete the UPS Participant Agreement via our Website:  RMS UPS Participant Agreement

  • Our Website:  www.recoveryms.com
  • Click on “Services” and select “Useful Public Service”
  • Click on the LInk “RMS UPS Participant Agreement”
  • Complete the Participant Agreement and email it to: remoteups@recoveryms.com

STEP 3 – We will send you an email confirming that we received the Participant Agreement. The email will include the following information:

  • Useful Public Service (UPS) Participant Agreement packet
  • Instructions on how to set up an intake

STEP 4 – Community Service Fees:  In order to get started, fees are required to be paid prior to being placed in the Community Service program. Accepted forms of payment include money order, exact cash, and credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover, or American Express accepted). No personal checks accepted. You can make a payment by giving us a call or when we contact you to schedule your intake. The fee schedule is as follows:

  • You were ordered 16 hours or less = $75.00 fee
  • You were ordered 17 hours or more = $120.00 fee
  • You were granted an extension by the Court past your original termination date = $50.00 fee

STEP 5 – RMS will schedule an appointment with you.  We will contact you once you have submitted the paperwork and made the payment

  • Phone or Virtual Intake:  At your appointment, you will speak with a Community Service Case Manager to do an intake in the comfort of your home.  We will go over all the guidelines on how to complete your community service hours.  After the phone call, we will email you a copy of the UPS Hour Log Sheet and a list of approved agencies. If you prefer to receive your forms via mail, expect to receive them in 3-5 business days after your phone intake.
