Ohio Criminal Justice Leaders Responding to Addiction

Updated: May 12

Criminal Justice Leaders Responding to Addiction was held on May 10th, 2024 and sponsored by RecoveryOhio, the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Addiction Policy Forum. The specialized training program provided rich information about addiction science, evidence-based treatment, recovery, and resources.

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.
