A comprehensive and tailored approach to addressing your community’s needs is critical to success. Identifying effective strategies and innovative practices in the treatment and support of high utilizers can reduce incarceration and promote vibrant and healthy communities. DDJ communities have implemented many successful strategies and practices, and come together on regular calls and webinars to discuss their work and learn from experts. Notes, presentations and recordings of these discussions are available here to enhance your efforts to implement data-driven justice in your community.
