Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $1,300,000)

Knox County proposes to implement a probation-focused case management
program (Intensive Case Management Program). The program’s purpose is to provide an
evidence-based response to the use and misuse of opioids, stimulants, and other substances by
expanding access to treatment and recovery support services for probationers supervised through
the Knox County Probation Department. The project will provide intensive case management
services and substance use treatment for individuals on probation who have a substance use
disorder and are at risk for overdose. The project will also increase access to recovery support
services for individuals on probation, which will be partially accomplished through a proposed
subrecipient agreement with the Metro Drug Coalition. Expected outcomes include reducing risk
of overdose death and enhancing evidence-based treatment and recovery service engagement for
those on supervised probation.
