Court Navigators Connect Justice-involved Individuals to More Than Just Treatment

Many individuals who become involved in the criminal justice system struggle with untreated substance use or mental health conditions. Court systems have taken an interest in linking them to treatment, but treatment uptake can be challenging for those with behavioral health conditions. Many have difficulty managing complex and stressful activities or lack the resources to do so, meaning that they may miss out on the benefits of treatment and face even worse health and legal outcomes. Navigation is a model that has been used in both health and legal settings to reduce barriers to treatment and significantly improve outcomes.
