This webinar will include a detailed presentation on the National Governor’s Association’s (NGA) and RTI International’s work to support states in identifying and addressing barriers to treatment for justice-involved individuals in the community and in the development of their Community Supervision and Treatment of Individuals With Substance Use Disorder policy briefs. During a COSSAP-funded roundtable discussion in December 2020, officials from seven states shared their challenges and innovative approaches to improving community supervision of individuals with SUD. The states represented were Arkansas, Delaware, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. The results of these roundtable discussions led to the development of this brief.
This webinar will highlight the common challenges and opportunities for governors and state officials to inform state and local policy development and improve outcomes for individuals with SUD who are under community supervision.
