TASC's Work


  • 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.

  • Best Wishes to Judge Biebel

    We thank the Honorable Paul P. Biebel, who has served for nearly 15 years as presiding judge of the criminal division of the Circuit Court of Cook County.

    From creating the mental health court to advancing systems interventions for people with substance use disorders, it has been our privilege to work with him.

    We extend our best wishes to Judge Biebel in his retirement.
