Register for Webinar: Alternatives to Incarceration for Individuals with Substance Use Disorders

Addiction Policy Forum logoHosted by the Addiction Policy Forum

For at least the last decade, criminal justice policymakers and practitioners have been testing alternatives to incarceration as a way to ease jail overcrowding, meet the needs of people in mental health crises, provide access to services for a variety of behavioral health needs, and keep families intact.

This webinar explores the evolution of these efforts, with a specific focus on the opioid overdose crisis. Presenters from Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities (TASC) will look at several models of police and prosecutorial diversion/deflection that have proven to be effective.

Date: Friday, June 9
Time: 2–3 p.m. ET
