    Webinar Series: Jail Reentry for People with Substance Use Disorders Resources

    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. NACo hosted a webinar series in March 2022 in conjunction with the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) to highlight strategies counties are using to support people with substance use disorders that are leaving jail. Presenters discuss strategies counties can use to partner with government agencies and service providers to share information about and develop jail reentry strategies that encompass training and workforce development, obtaining housing, accessing transportation and making connections to behavioral health treatment.
