“The Department’s addiction services provide a graduated system of substance abuse treatment programs. The agency’s Objective Classification System indicates that 88% of the inmates who come into the system have a substance abuse history that suggests a significant need for some level of substance abuse treatment.” (from the DOC website)
There will be panel discussions with formerly-incarcerated men and women and their families.
“Self-care & support, and support for loved ones” will be the topic of a panel discussion by organizations that support families in Connecticut
