Substance Abuse Center of Kansas’s Re-Entry Program – The Re-Entry Program was implemented to provide assessment, education, referral, and case management services to eligible inmates of the KDOC correctional institutions and upon release to those with or without supervision. When requested by various staff in KDOC, a drug and alcohol assessment is completed. Based on the assessment, the client is referred to a level of treatment that matches the intensity of the client’s substance abuse problem. Should there not be an available treatment opening when the client is released from prison, the client is placed on a waiting list and provided with case management services that specifically include communicating with and updating service agencies regarding consumer progress, referring to community agencies for specialized service needs, and assisting consumers through the drug and alcohol treatment continuum of care.
