    Jail Reentry for People with Substance Use Disorders Part 1: Meeting Immediate Needs

    • Webinar: Jail Reentry for People with Substance Use Disorders Part 2: Creating a Continuum of Care
    • Webinar: Jail Reentry for People with Substance Use Disorder Part 3: Sharing and Using Data

    Counties are implementing thoughtful and robust strategies to address the distinctive needs of individuals with substance use disorders (SUD) who are returning to the community from jail. Nearly two-thirds of people sentenced to jail meet the criteria for drug use or dependence, and reentry from jail can be a pivotal point in the justice process; this is especially true in times of instability like the current COVID-19 pandemic. Counties are supporting people’s reentry through housing, employment and transportation as well as accessing treatment.

    Join NACo for part one in a three-part series on supporting people with a substance use disorder leaving jail. Presenters will discuss strategies counties can use to partner with government agencies and service providers to share information and develop jail reentry strategies that encompass training and workforce development, housing obtainment, accessing transportation and connections to behavioral health treatment.
