Justice Today Podcast: Reaching Recovery in Rural and Tribal Areas
The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) invites you to listen to this podcast featuring County Prosecutor Bradley Carlyon of Navajo County, Arizona. In this episode, he details working to help residents on the road to recovery from the moment they enter the county jail. "One of the things that we're doing through a BJA program, Reaching Rural, is creating a peer support network that would start in the jail with peers, where they can make those connections with substance users in the jails. And then, as they're released to the behavioral health program, continue that peer support to help them along their path to recovery." – Bradley Carlyon
