Reentry programming provides transition planning and support to people with mental and substance use disorders who are returning to the community after incarceration in jail or prison. Effective reentry planning ensures people have workable plans in place to provide seamless access to medication, treatment, housing, health care coverage, and services from the moment of release and throughout their reentry. Examples of reentry services can include planning for medication access upon release, coordination and hand-off to community treatment providers, and connection to support services such as housing and employment support.
