Mission of the Juneau Reentry Coalition:
To promote public safety within the community by identifying and implementing strategies that increase the success of all justice-involved individuals and reduces the likelihood of recidivism.
The Juneau Reentry Coalition launches the Behavioral Health Resource Directory
Having a reentry plan is vitally important!
A reentry plan should be a part of every reentrant’s return to the community after incarceration. The adage, “if you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time” (Zig Ziglar) is valid concerning reentry success.
Connecting to behavioral health resources can be a critical piece of an individual’s reentry plan. Finding the right treatment or service intended to reach a reentry goal is sometimes a challenge.
To help, the Juneau Reentry Coalition has added the Behavioral Health Resource Directory to its website. Finding the right resource may be as simple as clicking the check-box next to a treatment or service.
Or if a check-box service is not what you are looking for, put a term into the search box, such as “outpatient treatment,” and providers will populate the return. You can click on a service provider to get connected to all their services, and by downloading the “full PDF Questionnaire.”
