About the Course:

Almost all jail inmates with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders will leave correctional settings and return to the community. Inadequate transition planning puts people with co-occurring disorders who enter jail in a state of crisis back on the streets in the middle of the same crisis. While there are no outcome studies to guide evidence-based transition planning practices, there is enough guidance from the multi-site studies of the organization of jail mental health programs to propose a best practice model. This manuscript presents one such model. The APIC Model is a set of critical elements that, if implemented, are likely to improve outcomes for persons with co-occurring disorders who are released from jail.

This course is based on the reading-based online, A Best Practice Approach to Community Re-entry From Jails for Inmates With Co-occurring Disorders: The APIC Model created by Fred Osher, M.D., Henry J. Steadman, Ph.D., Heather Barr, J.D., M.A.
