Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $900,000)

The Improving Reentry for Adults with Substance Use Disorders Program improves provision of services to offenders with substance use disorders when they leave incarceration to reenter the community, which in turn will help to reduce recidivism, promote public safety and recovery.

The purpose of the program is to enhance corrections systems’ ability to address the substance use treatment needs of offenders in order to reduce recidivism, promote recovery, and, in the process, to improve public safety and public health.

Steppingstone will use funds to implement the Bristol County Reentry Project to: 1. Improve provision of drug treatment to offenders in prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities, including provision of prison-based family treatment programs to incarcerated parents of minor children or pregnant women; and 2. Reduce use of alcohol and other drugs by long-term substance abusers during the period of incarceration and during parole or court supervision. The population to receive services from Steppingstone’s Bristol County Reentry Project will consist of 180 adult male and females with substance use disorders or co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders.
