Your PTACC Ticker

1) National Survey to Assess Law Enforcement-led Diversion Programs and Fire/EMS-led Responses to the Opioid Crisis

PTACC National Founding Partner, TASC's Center for Health and Justice (CHJ) and NORC at the University of Chicago have launched the National Survey to Assess Law Enforcement-led Diversion Programs and Fire/EMS-led Responses to the Opioid Crisis initiative. All law enforcement and first responder diversion programs that primarily serve individuals with substance use disorders are encouraged to complete a survey and be counted!

Why participate? Participation from all entities that offer diversion programs is critical for the survey to accurately reflect the broad field of first responder diversion programs. These data will help identify essential features of diversion programs and provide a comprehensive picture of the state of the field. Although this survey is voluntary, we need and appreciate your organization’s participation to make the results comprehensive and accurate.

Take the survey here!
