The programs in Justice Services provide a range of support options for those individuals involved in the criminal justice system and who are often experiencing multiple and complex problems.
The services that are provided include assessment, planning and brokerage of drug and alcohol treatment for those experiencing problematic substance use. Also, pre and post release prison programs provide support in addressing chronic homelessness, unemployment and social isolation. The aim of transitional support is ultimately the successful re entry into the community and prevention of re-offending.
