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.
Puerto Rico Mental Health and Anti-Addiction Services Administration (MHAASA) will use funds to support the Treatment and Recovery for Incarcerated Parents Project at the Bayamon Correctional Facility, and the Rio Piedras Recovery Center for post-release services. This project will serve approximately 200 participants.
