The Crisis Stabilization and Community Reentry Program supports state, local, and tribal governments, as well as community-based nonprofit organizations and eligible behavioral health providers, to coordinate and provide comprehensive treatment, recovery, and other supportive reentry services to people experiencing mental health, substance use, or co-occurring disorders who are currently involved in the criminal justice system or were formerly involved. Programs funded under this solicitation must make sure that individuals are screened, assessed, and identified for program participation and clinical services during pretrial detention or as early as possible upon incarceration and prior to release. Following release from incarceration or pretrial detention, participants should receive discharge planning and wraparound services based on the results of their screening and assessment that support continuity of care and long-term recovery in the community. These services may include benefit coordination, case management, evidence-based programming, peer support, enrollment in healthcare coverage, relapse prevention, suicide prevention, homelessness prevention, and clinically indicated medications. Services must focus on care coordination and collaboration.
The collaboratively designed series of treatment, recovery, and transitional services must make sure that individuals are set up for success before their transition, so that the transition from a prison, jail, or juvenile detention facility to the community is safe and successful. A comprehensive and collaborative crisis stabilization and community reentry program should include benefit and care coordination among government stakeholders, community-based organizations, behavioral health providers such as community mental health centers and certified community behavioral health clinics, and youth assessment centers. Programming must include recovery support services including trauma informed care, access to clinically indicated medication while in an incarcerated setting or developmentally appropriate services for youth cases, and continuity of care during reentry into the community based on the results of the screening and assessment. Working in collaboration with a BJA-sponsored technical assistance provider, successful applicants are expected to modify their administrative and clinical processes to include best practices and evidence-based interventions such as appropriate treatment and recovery supports, building coordinated partnerships among jurisdictional stakeholders, and training on program implementation, crisis response, treatment adherence, and continuity of recovery in the community.
