General Information
Description of ProgramSuffolk TASC is an alternative to incarceration program used by the Criminal Court to intervene with individuals charged with a non-violent misdemeanor/felony crime that is casually related to their substance abuse. Services are provided to adult offenders, facing 60 days or more of jail time and who demonstrate an alcohol and/or drug problem. Suffolk TASC will also accept non-violent predicate felony offenders with the approval of the District Attorney's office.

The treatment plan developed by TASC staff is presented to the Court for its approval. Defendants participating in TASC must have a current history of substance abuse and be willing to enter treatment for a minimum of 12 months. TASC clients are monitored by staff with an expertise in substance abuse, and regular reports are presented to the Court outlining client progress. Persons not complying with all conditions of TASC and the Court are brought back to Court for further adjudication. Call for further information.
