Event Details

In response to economic realities and overburdened justice systems, counties and jurisdictions across the country are implementing justice diversion programs that redirect certain eligible defendants into alternative sanctions, especially when individuals need treatment for substance use or mental health problems.

The Center for Health and Justice at TASC, a national public policy group focused on criminal justice and health issues, has undertaken a national survey of these diversion programs and initiatives, focusing on their strategies and lessons learned for reducing recidivism, improving health interventions, and achieving public cost savings.

The briefing will give an overview of the scope and variety of justice diversion programs across the country, offering implications and recommendations for public policy and criminal justice practice.

Center for Health and Justice at TASC

The Center for Health and Justice (CHJ) offers practical, results-driven strategies to reduce recidivism by addressing addiction and mental illness among criminal justice populations.

In partnership with researchers and program experts from across the country, we provide consultation, training, and public policy solutions that improve community health, reduce rearrest, and save money. We have a solid track record of developing data-driven strategies and results for local, state, federal, and international bodies.

We are committed to fair, practical, and evidence-based strategies that balance treatment with accountability, public health with public safety, and investments with results.

Established in 2006, and grounded in four decades of direct criminal justice experience at TASC, the Center for Health and Justice is a leader in state and national criminal justice and behavioral health policy.
