Jail Reentry for People with Substance Use Disorders Part 3: Sharing and Using Data
As previously mentioned in last week’s CSAC Bulletin, the National Association of Counties (NACo) will hold the third and final part of their Jail Reentry for People with Substance Use Disorders webinar series, Sharing and Using Data on Wednesday, March 30 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Presenters will discuss strategies counties can implement to use and share data for making strategic policy decisions and enhancing coordination of treatment and services to support recovery and improve individual outcomes.
Counties are finding innovative ways to use and share data to support reentry and engagement in treatment as well as identify people at risk of overdose. Reentry from jail is a pivotal point in the justice process for individuals returning to the community who have substance use disorders (SUD); this is especially true in times of instability like the current COVID-19 pandemic. A key component of ensuring that individuals get the treatment and services they need is sharing information and collecting data on individuals being served.
