Improving Substance Use Disorder Treatment and Recovery Outcomes for Adults in Reentry

Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance seeks applications for funding to establish, expand, and improve treatment and recovery support services for people with substance use disorders during their incarceration and upon reentry into the community.

Goals, Objectives, and Deliverables


  • Enhance corrections systems and community-based service providers’ ability to address the substance use disorder treatment and recovery support service needs of people, including parents with minor children and pregnant/postpartum women, who are incarcerated and upon reentry in order to reduce recidivism, promote longterm recovery, and, in the process, improve public safety and public health.


  • Improve the provision of evidence-based substance use disorder treatment and recovery services to individuals in prisons and jails and through the reentry process, including the provision of MAT.
  • Provide prison-based family substance use disorder treatment programs to incarcerated parents of minor children or pregnant/postpartum women.
  • Reduce the use of alcohol and other drugs by people with long-term substance use disorders during the period of incarceration and through the completion of parole or court supervision.


  • An action plan to be developed with input from BJA and the assigned TTA provider and submitted within 6 months of receiving final budget approval.
  • A final performance closeout report at the end of the project period.
