Research & Policy
TASC is dedicated to advancing the knowledge of substance abuse trends and models for intervention to inform and promote public policies that address these issues.
TASC Research & Evaluation
TASC's research division works with TASC programs to identify and integrate evidence-based practices into TASC clinical services. This includes conducting internal, utilization-focused surveys and evaluations on TASC programs to ensure the most efficient and effective use of services.
Public Policy Development
TASC helps public systems devise ways to more effectively manage populations who are dealing with behavioral health issues and who are under the jurisdiction of publicly-funded programs. TASC reaches policymakers with timely, relevant data from the latest research and helps those policymakers improve the ability of public systems to address the problems of substance abuse, mental illness, and crime in our communities.
The Center For Health & Justice (CHJ) at TASC
The Center for Health & Justice at TASC collaborates with community leaders and academic institutions to apply extensive research and development work, and the understanding of substance abuse, criminal activity, and general behavioral health toward practical solutions that stop the cycle of drugs and crime.
These collaborations ensure that TASC remains on the leading edge of clinical knowledge and policy formulation, and that best service delivery practices are shared with community partners.
CHJ routinely publishes articles and studies on a wide range of topics relevant to substance abuse, treatment, and other social services within the criminal justice system.
