Services can be provided to individuals who may or may not be engaged in treatment. To be eligible for the TASC Program, the client must reside in Bucks County and not have any history of violent crime. The program supports efficient use of resources by screening, assessing and placing justice clients in the appropriate level of care and ensuring that transitional & aftercare needs are met. Benefits of TASC include; increased communication between the legal and healthcare systems, reduced recidivism and new arrests and increased engagement in treatment services.
