An innovative, uniquely designed program to divert non-violent offenders living with substance use disorders. Located in the Bridgeport Superior Court, the program is a collaboration between us, the Connecticut Department of Correction, and the Connecticut Judicial Branch, providing immediate assessment and assertive linkage for those individuals who are more appropriately served by treatment than incarceration.
Treatment options include:
A unique aspect of the program is our ability to connect each referral with an entitlement specialist. We also assist each individual in applying for Connecticut’s Husky D Health Insurance (Medicaid for the Lowest-Income Populations) through Connecticut’s Insurance Exchange.
In collaboration with Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities (TASC) and partner organizations, we collect, analyze and disseminate essential data to demonstrate the value and cost savings of pre-trial diversion and treatment.
