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 grantee will use funds to support the Southeast Kentucky Reentry Program, which will include the Letcher County Jail and serve these Kentucky counties: Letcher, Knott, Leslie, Perry, and Pike. The project will serve 210 medium to high-risk adults ages 18+ with substance use or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders.
