  • Making a Difference in Illinois

    TASC is a path to health and recovery for people involved in criminal justice, juvenile justice, child welfare, and public health systems in Illinois. We are independent advocates and case managers for our clients, helping men, women, and adolescents get the right services to meet their needs.

    Working in partnership with government systems and hundreds of community-based service providers across the state, TASC serves 27,000 people annually. Our programs save taxpayer dollars, reduce drug abuse and recidivism, and motivate long-term success.

Did You Know?

Individuals who successfully complete drug treatment in the Sheridan and Southwestern Illinois Correctional Centers, as well as aftercare services in the community, are at least 44% less likely to return prison within three years. Together, these two programs save the state $5 million per year in reduced incarceration costs.
