  • Making a Difference in Illinois

    TASC is a path to health and recovery for people involved in criminal justice, juvenile justice, child welfare, and public health systems. We are advocates, case managers, and direct service providers for our clients.

    Working in partnership with government systems and hundreds of community-based service providers across Illinois, TASC reaches more than 50,000 people annually, including in-depth services for more than 15,000 adults and youth. Our programs save taxpayer dollars, reduce drug abuse and recidivism, and motivate long-term success in the community.

  • SB 3023: Law Enforcement Deflection to Treatment in IL

    SB 3023 gives police and communities a valuable tool to use in combating the opioid crisis. It creates the Community-Law Enforcement Partnership for Deflection and Substance Use Disorder Treatment Act, authorizing and encouraging local law enforcement leaders to partner with treatment and community members on programs that “deflect” individuals who have overdosed or who have substance use problems away from the criminal justice system and into addiction treatment services. This is a joint initiative of the Dixon Police Department, the Mundelein Police Department, and TASC.

  • TASC Public Policy Priorities

    1. Shrink the justice system by diverting eligible people away from prosecution and incarceration and into community-based services, as soon as appropriate.

    2. Create pathways for successful reentry after justice involvement.  

    3. Promote evidence-based strategies in substance use and mental health disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery.

    4. Expand community capacity to treat mental health and substance use disorders, adapting to changing environments. Learn more.
