  • TASC Offers Roll Call Videos for Law Enforcement: The Science of Addiction, Building Partnership with Treatment

    The Center for Health and Justice at TASC has produced two short videos designed to support law enforcement in connecting addicted individuals to treatment in the community.

    Designed for showing during roll call or staff meetings, the videos can be viewed on the Center for Health and Justice website.

  • TASC Public Policy Priorities

    1. Shrink the justice system by diverting eligible people away from prosecution and incarceration and into community-based services, as soon as appropriate.

    2. Create pathways for successful reentry after justice involvement.  

    3. Promote evidence-based strategies in substance use and mental health disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery.

    4. Expand community capacity to treat mental health and substance use disorders, adapting to changing environments. Learn more.

  • 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. We are advocates, case managers, and direct service providers for our clients, helping men, women, and adolescents get the help they need to be successful in the community.

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