TASC, a division of Meridian HealthCare, works together with Mahoning County’s Criminal Justice System to help criminal offenders with chemical dependency issues.
The work of TASC benefits not only the clients it serves but the entire community. The correlation between crime and the use of drugs and/or alcohol is well known. Through early identification, assessment, referral, monitoring and case management, offenders participating in the program are more likely to have a successful treatment experience. This, in turn, reduces the likelihood that they will re-offend.
