Many individuals who have a substance use disorder have contact with the criminal justice system through an arrest, citation, probation, diversion court, or incarceration. It is estimated that 63% of people in jail and 58% in prison have a substance use disorder. The criminal justice system is one of the touchpoints where a criminal justice professional can have a conversation and respond to an individual’s addiction. These leaders are among the many stakeholders who can help create change within our communities.
