The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) is accepting applications from SCAs who shall expand or create a collaborative between local law enforcement, treatment professionals, and recovery support providers to establish a diversion program. Active and engaged relationships with the local District Attorney, identified local police departments, Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) treatment providers, and Certified Recovery Specialists (CRS) shall be foundational to such an initiative. Rather than experiencing legal consequences for an OUD, individuals shall receive treatment and support services for the underlying cause of the arrest.
Reminder: Questions can be submitted via email through tomorrow, November 20, 2019 by 5:00 pm. Applications are due by December 5.
