Treatment as an Alternative to Incarceration- Case of a Veteran

The court approved a referral to TASC in the case of a veteran with felony charges, substance use disorder, trauma history and chronic homelessness. In turn, our team incorporated a risk and needs assessment, identified the District of Fiscal Responsibility and worked with the appropriate arm of the Department of Social Services to complete an OASAS level of care review. TASC also worked with a navigator at the Healthy Capital District Initiative to apply the incarcerated veteran with managed Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

Once the treatment plan was approved by the court, TASC's case management team moved forward with obtaining medical, mental health and substance use records necessary for referrals; worked with Inmate Services to facilitate screenings by appropriate programs; and coordinated release and transport once a treatment bed was available.

Thank you to the team at St. Joseph's Addiction Recovery Center in Saranac Lake for working closely with us on referrals for veterans who are justice-involved and in need of substance use disorder services.
