  • National Survey of Diversion Programs

    At a Congressional staff briefing in Washington, the Center for Health and Justice at TASC has released a national survey of criminal justice diversion programs, focusing on their strategies for reducing recidivism, improving health interventions, and achieving public cost savings.

    Diversion programs are critical for reversing the tide of over-incarceration of people with substance and mental health conditions.
