Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $899,995)

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.

DISC Village, Inc. will use funding to implement the Rural Jail Re-Entry Network: Solutions for Adults with Substance Use Disorders to focus on offenders released from jails that are managed by three county sheriffs in Wakulla, Jefferson and Madison Counties in Florida. The target population for the project includes approximately 100 adults who meet substance use disorder criteria.
