Local Justice System Responses to Methamphetamine

Event Dates

This webinar will focus on the impact methamphetamine use has on local justice systems. Increased use of meth has prompted jurisdictions to develop tailored diversion programs, integrate effective programming into jail-based treatment, and transform reentry supports through cross-system collaboration to better meet the needs of affected individuals and families.

This webinar will showcase the steps Sacramento County, California, has taken in response to persistent high rates of methamphetamine and other drug use among individuals involved in the criminal justice system. It will feature five speakers that represent efforts across justice system intercepts including jail diversion, drug courts, in-custody programming, and re-entry supports.

Speakers will share the approaches that have helped decrease overdose fatality rates in Sacramento County despite recent significant increases in statewide overdose deaths.
