State Efforts to Address Substance Use Disorder Treatment Needs for Individuals on Community Supervision

Event Dates

This webinar will highlight the common challenges and opportunities for governors and state officials to inform state and local policy development and improve outcomes for individuals with substance use disorder (SUD) who are under community supervision.

This webinar will include a detailed presentation on the National Governor’s Association’s and RTI International’s work to support states in identifying and addressing barriers to treatment for justice-involved individuals in the community and the development of their Community Supervision and Treatment of Individuals With Substance Use Disorder policy brief.

During a Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program-funded roundtable discussion in December 2020, officials from seven states (Arkansas, Delaware, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee) shared their challenges and innovative approaches to improving community supervision of individuals with SUD. The results of this roundtable discussion led to the development of this brief.
