Addiction Policy Forum

Addiction Policy Forum is a nationwide nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating addiction as a major health problem. Our national headquarters is located in Washington, DC with resources and services in every state.

The Moms and Babies Program at the Decatur Correctional Center in Illinois is a prison nursery and community reentry program that allows incarcerated mothers to keep their newborn infants with them for a specific amount of time, and supports these women in developing and nurturing bonds with their babies. Following release from prison, Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities continues case management, home-visits, and linkages to community services to continue progress.
