Access TTA Resources for Substance Abuse Diversion Programs

Substance abuse diversion programs can help law enforcement and other first responders to direct individuals who have overdosed toward community-based behavioral health services and away from the criminal justice system. As part of the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s First Responder Partnerships (FRP) Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Initiative and BJA’s Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP), the Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities (TASC) Center for Health and Justice (CHJ) provides resources and TTA to expand substance abuse diversion programs while maintaining public safety. To help first responders addressing the opioid epidemic, TASC-CHJ releases many resources through COSSAP. Below are a few highlighted resources from 2020.
