To break the cycle of recidivism, TASC of Northwest Ohio supports criminal justice-involved individuals in their efforts to become healthy, self-sufficient, and law-abiding citizens.
How TASC Works
The TASC model provides assessment, treatment, referral to treatment, case management, and monitoring and reporting services. The TASC model offers an integrated system of care in meeting the needs of the justice system, the treatment system, and, most of all, the client. TASC programs work with courts (including drug and juvenile) and corrections to ensure treatment is available for community-based supervision and institutional aftercare. Participants receive an in-depth interview with qualified staff to determine the nature and extent of their involvement with alcohol and other drugs. Clients are referred to the most appropriate treatment provider based on the results of the assessment process. TASC case managers monitor the individual’s progress, provide continued support, and coordinate the delivery of services, including drug testing. TASC keeps referral sources and service providers informed of the client’s progress through regular reporting.
