To connect individuals leaving correctional facilities or involved in criminal justice (CJ) systems or specialty courts for needed treatment, it is critical to leverage state and federal investments such as SSI and SSDI. These federal programs can promote access to services that increase the likelihood of post release success and contribute to the reduction in recidivism. Currently, all 50 states participate in the federally sponsored SOAR program and we are working to expand SOAR within agencies, facilities and court systems interested in innovative ways to address the needs of people that are involved in the justice system.
On behalf of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), we are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications from agencies and institutions that provide services to individuals that are involved in the criminal justice system. Eligible candidates are those that are not currently successfully implementing SOAR.
The SOAR TA Center is sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
