Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $998,800)

The Improving Reentry for Adults with Co-occurring Substance Abuse and Mental Illness Program improves provision of services to offenders with co-occurring substance abuse and mental illness (CSAMI) when they leave incarceration to reenter the community, which in turn will help to reduce recidivism and promote public safety. Specifically, its goal is to improve access to and delivery of standardized screening and assessment, collaborative comprehensive case management, and pre- and post-release programming for returning inmates that address criminogenic risk and needs, including treatment and services that address mental illness and substance abuse. The program prioritizes coordination among corrections, substance abuse, and mental health treatment providers, as well as correctional health, and parole or probation services, which enables the development of collaborative comprehensive case plans that address criminogenic risk, substance abuse, and mental health needs. The grantee will use funds to support the Alameda County’s Co-occurring Substance Abuse and Mental Illness (CSAMI) program. The goals of this program are to reduce recidivism and improve public safety and public health by providing screening, assessment, and pre- and post-release treatment for adults ages 18 and over with co-occurring substance use and mental disorders. This program is projected to serve 1,000 individuals annually. CA/NCF
