Treatment Alternatives to Safer Communities (TASC)

Treatment Alternatives to Safer Communities (TASC), a service offered through The Council of Southeast PA, Inc., provides a bridge between the Criminal Justice System and the Drug and Alcohol treatment community. Potential clients are identified and as­sessed to determine treatment need and potential.

Accepted individuals are referred to the appropriate facility and monitored throughout their involvement by case managers. This is an opportunity for individuals whose drug and alco­hol abuse has led them to criminal activity to turn their lives around.

In addition, the Council connects with the H.O.P.E. Recovery Unit at Bucks County Correctional Facility to engage referred clients prior to re-entry into the community.

How Does TASC Work?

  • Assess for treatment and recovery support needs
  • Support individual recovery goals through Case Management and Cognitive Skills Groups
  • Refer clients to and ensuring placement in community-based treatment and support services
  • Integrate service needs and supervision requirements
  • Monitor client progress and reporting to the criminal justice system

Who Does TASC Serve?
  • Bucks County resident referred by probation, parole or judges
  • Bucks County residents with legal issues related to their alcohol and other drug use
  • Bucks County residents with legal issues that are not a violent and/or sex offense
