Program Description

The Problem:

Individuals within the criminal justice system who are diagnosed with substance use disorders are not offered supportive services, which results in high recidivism rates.

Our Solution:

Provide tools and case management services for individuals with substance use disorders to ensure they have the resources needed to successfully re-enter society.

How We Do it:

The Transitional Case Management SUD program provides enhanced transition planning for incarcerated individuals at Yaphank and Riverhead jails eighteen years of age and older with a documented substance use disorder.

Prior to individuals’ discharge, Case Managers begin working on a personalized transition plan within the confines of the jails to be put into place upon the individual’s release, at which point they continue working with participants for approximately three months to secure appropriate primary and behavioral healthcare, vocational and educational services, benefits and entitlements assistance, housing referrals, and peer support.

The Case Managers ensure that participants receive appropriate long-term case management services before being discharged from the SUD program to ensure effective re-entry to society.

How You Can Help:

SUD is in need of hygiene products such as hair brushes, tooth brushes, tooth paste, shampoo, conditioner, washcloths, combs, lotion, and feminine products. To support TCM-SUD with a gift, click here or call (516) 539-0150 x117.
