The St. Tammany Parish Government (STPG) Department of Health and Human Services is implementing the Opioid Use Intervention and Diversion Collaboration Program. STPG is engaging multiple stakeholders from across government and the community to develop cross-system collaboration and protocols that identify offenders in need of treatment and recovery support to prevent drug overdoses. A key focus is strategic planning among the 22nd Judicial District Court, local law enforcement, and the jail to identify effective diversion and/or alternatives to incarceration treatment services that will more closely link the systems and increase coordination of transitional care and support for individuals involved in the criminal justice system.
