Community-Based Treatment Capacity to Meet Demand for SUD Services
Communities seeking to connect addicted individuals to substance use disorder treatment services may arrive at the seminal question, "Divert to what?" Further, trouble accessing adequate and appropriate quality treatment poses an enormous barrier to fully implementing diversion processes. This webinar describes the components of a robust network of treatment services, strategies for expanding access to treatment services, and several key elements of capacity to meet the demand for services in a community. The webinar also explores the challenges and successes that the Gateway Foundation and collaborators encountered in developing and implementing the "A Way Out" law enforcement diversion program in Lake County, Illinois, in which individuals may self-refer for treatment services via the local police department.
