Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $900,000)

The Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) was developed as part of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) legislation. COSSAP’s purpose is to provide financial and technical assistance to states, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to develop, implement, or expand comprehensive efforts to identify, respond to, treat, and support those impacted by illicit opioids, stimulants, and other drugs of abuse.

The objective of Category 1 is to encourage and support the development of comprehensive, locally driven responses to opioids, stimulants, and other substances that expand access to supervision, treatment, and recovery support services across the criminal justice system; support law enforcement and other first responder diversion programs for nonviolent drug offenders; promote education and prevention activities; and address the needs of children impacted by substance abuse.

The Coordinated Substance Use Disorder treatment for Jail and Reentry Populations Project will (1) implement postbooking substance use clinical assessments for all eligible inmates in Ottawa County Jail, (2) implement individual and group-based substance use treatment programming for inmates identified as having a substance use disorder, and (3) implement a coordinated community reentry strategy for post-sentence release from jail that promotes access to social services and strengthens probation supervision. This project serves Ottawa County, Michigan.
