Improving Reentry for Adults with Substance Use Disorders Program

Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is seeking applications for funding to establish, expand, and improve treatment for adults with substance use disorders during their incarceration and reentry into the community. This program improves provision of services to justice-involved individuals with substance use disorders when they leave incarceration to reenter the community, which in turn will help to reduce recidivism, promote public safety, and recovery.

Objectives

  • Improve the provision of drug treatment to individuals in prisons and  jails, including the provision of prison-based family treatment programs to incarcerated parents of minor children or pregnant women.
  • Reduce the use of alcohol and other drugs by long-term substance users during the period of incarceration and during parole or court supervision.
