DRC Director Touts Partnership With OMHAS To Provide Inmates Addiction Treatment

Agency directors on Thursday promoted an executive budget proposal that teams up their state departments to address the high number of drug addicted individuals in state prisons and better prepare them for re-entry into the community.

The budget proposes that the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services take over and expand the recovery and treatment programs inside the state prisons run by the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction at a cost of $27.4 million in Fiscal Year 2016 and $34.4 million in FY 2017. Of that funding, $12.5 million will be transferred from the DRC budget. (LSC Redbook)
