Stepping Up is a national movement to provide counties with the tools they need to develop cross-systems, data-driven strategies that can lead to measurable reductions in the number of people with mental illnesses and co-occurring disorders in jails. In this presentation, a member of the Stepping Up team from The Council of State Governments Justice Center will provide a brief overview of the Stepping Up initiative and the Pennsylvania Stepping Up TA Center. Representatives from Chester County and Dauphin County will then speak about the work they are doing in their respective counties to improve access to services and reduce justice involvement for people with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders by utilizing the Stepping Up framework.

November 16, 2022 (1:05:04)
For those who have been incarcerated or released from prison, addiction recovery can present an additional barrier to success. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) relieves some of the struggles that come with controlling addiction, eliminating substance abuse, recovering from symptoms, managing relationships, and moving on with life in the community. Because it involves both behavioral therapy and FDA-approved medication that can help addicted individuals curb their cravings, MAT can make quitting drugs easier so that they can start life over without addiction weighing them down. Join us a representative from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections provides information on implementation MAT in the correctional setting.

Criminal Justice Reentry in Pennsylvania
November 17, 2022 (1:05:38)
As important as it is to have statewide leadership on reentry issues, each returning citizen comes home to specific communities with their own individualized needs and unique set of barriers. Services must be tailored to meet these realities, and so reentry services must be delivered at the county and local level. Reentry coalitions are county-level organizations that partner with local, state, and federal government agencies, community-based service providers, researchers, advocates, returning citizens, faith-based groups, and others to address reentry needs in their communities. Join representatives from the Office of Attorney General and the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency who will provide an overview of reentry efforts in Pennsylvania, how counties can get involved, and the purpose of the Pennsylvania Reentry Council.
