ALLEGHENY COUNTY TASC:
Initiated in 1972, the Treatment Accountability for a Safer Community (TASC) Program is a response to the recognized links between substance abuse and criminal behavior. The goal of TASC is to interrupt the persistent drug-using behavior of offenders by linking the sanctions of the criminal justice system to the therapeutic process of substance abuse treatment. Individuals enrolled in TASC are tracked throughout their involvement in substance abuse treatment and their progress in treatment is routinely reported to the appropriate component of the criminal justice system. Urine analysis monitoring is provided to ensure an individual’s compliance with parole/probation and program treatment plans as well as a method for identifying individuals who are in danger of relapsing back into addiction and/or criminal behavior. Program services and monitoring are increased for individuals who test positive for alcohol and/or drugs. In addition, case management services are provided as ancillary support for the recovery process.
