We provide direct services to youth and families, and we partner with community coalitions to help stop generational cycles of substance use and arrest. 
 

Prevention

At TASC, we understand that client involvement in juvenile justice or child welfare systems increases the likelihood of later involvement in the adult criminal justice system. Our ultimate goal is to divert people away from involvement in that system.

To this end, we serve youth in child welfare and juvenile justice systems for whom we provide case management and wraparound services. Under the leadership of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), we also serve parents in the child welfare system who have substance use disorders.

Making a Difference

Our preventative approach works: Among TASC’s juvenile justice clients, treatment completion rates are nearly double those of justice-involved youth sent to treatment without TASC.

In our Family Recovery and Reunification Program (formerly called the Recovery Coach program), families referred to TASC were more likely to be reunified than families in a control group, and on average, they were reunified four months sooner. Additionally, the program was found to eliminate racial disparities in reunification that persist in the control group.

The program has generated more than $11 million in savings between 2002 and 2017, preventing unnecessary expenditures by Illinois taxpayers. And future entry into the justice system was prevented: children of participating parents were half as likely to be re-arrested compared to those in a control group.
