Bringing NIATx to Corrections: Lessons Learned from Three Pilot Studies
This report documents the key lessons learned and recommendations to help criminal justice and substance use treatment systems improve transitions between institutional and community care.
To help connect people reentering their communities from jail or prison to substance use treatment, the CSG Justice Center partnered with NIATx—a learning collaborative that is part of the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies (CHESS) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison—to bring its process improvement model to corrections.
Through a competitive application process, three pilot sites were selected to work with the CSG Justice Center and NIATx from 2011 to 2013:
- DeKalb County, Georgia
- Durham County, North Carolina
- The State of Maryland
