Author(s): Council of State Governments Justice Center
Teaser: A review of Maryland's experience using funding to support programs for people with co-occurring disorders involved in the justice system. This brief discusses Maryland's experience using funds to support unique programs serving individuals with co-occurring substance use disorders and trauma histories who may be homeless or incarcerated. The four defined goals of these programs are: to prevent recidivism to homelessness, detention centers, and psychiatric hospitals; to deliver coordinated services to adults with special needs; to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions; and to identify and fund gaps in the provision of services.
