Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime (TASC): Individual Project Reports. Volume 1, Chapter 4, Miami TASC.
Toborg, Mary A.; And Others
As part of a Phase 1 evaluation study of the Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime (TASC) program, The Lazar Institute visited ten TASC projects, including the one in Miami, Florida. Results of this stage of the study have been provided to LEAA's National Institute of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice in three volumes. The materials in those volumes which pertain to Miami TASC have been separately bound into this report, which includes: (1) the introductory chapter, describing the purpose and scope of the full study; (2) the narrative description of the Miami project (Chapter 4 of the study); and (3) the flow diagram of the Miami TASC intervention. The Miami TASC program is designed to identify drug-abuse arrestees and divert them to either jail treatment or one of the Miami community's drug treatment programs. Clients may be referred to treatment prior to or after disposition of the charges against them. The project has five major operational components: (1) screening; (2) intake; (3) tracking, evaluation and research; (4) vocational rehabilitation; and, (5) jail treatment. This report describes all five components and discusses some feasible evaluation measures along with flow measures. (Author)
