Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $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.

The Life House, Inc. will use funds to provide programming to adult offenders with substance use disorders who are incarcerated under the custody of the West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation. While the target population includes offenders across West Virginia, many participants will likely be drawn from Kanawha and Cabell counties, as these counties have the highest number of offenders. This program is projected to serve 180 participants. CA/NCF
