Supporting international alternatives to incarceration for individuals with substance use and/or mental health disorders

Substance use and mental health disorders pose major challenges for legal and health systems around the world. The Center for Advancing Justice helps countries and territories implement evidence-based legal and health system improvements that address these underlying causes of crime, reduce reoffending, and strengthen communities. The Center for Advancing Justice uses the PEOPLE framework to guide our assessment, training, and technical assistance work with both adult and juvenile legal and health systems across the globe.
