Recovery-Oriented Care for Drug-Abusing Offenders

Article published in Addiction Science and Clinical Practice (April 2009, Vol. 5, No. 1). The article affirms that a recovery-oriented system of care for drug-abusing criminal offenders is one that provides for continuity of treatment, using evidence-based interventions at every stage as clients progress through the justice system. Authors describe how TASC, Inc. has partnered with criminal justice and treatment programs to establish a basic recovery-oriented system, with programs that span pre-adjudication, probation or incarceration, and parole.

The article was authored by Melody M. Heaps (TASC), Arthur J. Lurigio (Loyola University Chicago), Pamela F. Rodriguez (TASC), Thomas Lyons (TASC), and Laura Brookes (TASC).
