  • 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.

  • 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.
