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.
The Alaska Native Justice Center will use funds to implement the Yagheli ten (Good Trails) Reentry Program to serve South-central Alaska’s Anchorage Metro Area. The pre-release services include individualized case-management and case planning, risk assessment, Moral Recognition Therapy initiation, peer support groups, and cultural activities. The project will serve 100 participants. CA/NCF
