Curriculum Development - Alternatives to Incarceration, Case and Care Management

 

Curriculum Development, Case and Care Management

CICAD supports the development of a universal curriculum on alternatives to incarceration (ATI), geared to policymakers in the areas of treatment and the criminal justice system. The ATI curriculum informs policymakers on the exploration and implementation of pilot projects concerning various ATI models, including:  (1) drug treatment courts for adults and/or juveniles (adapted and expanded to fifteen countries across the hemisphere); (2) re-entry courts; and (3) community courts.

Nonetheless, these models often could benefit from a case and care management component, that is, a community-based system to support services and recovery.  The primary objective of these alternatives is to advance the social integration of drug-related offenders through a multi-agency approach, combining various sustainability mechanisms (justice, health, educational, training, work placement, and other social and administrative measures).  "Case and care management" (CCM) programs support this approach. 

After jointly developing ATI pilot trainings and engagement with country authorities, CICAD has expanded the original concept of "case management" to "case and care management" to avoid confusion with the term "case management," which is commonly used in the judiciaries of several member states, and "care management," which is commonly used in health systems. 

While the ATI curriculum will offer a strong base for implementing alternatives to incarceration models in the region, the CCM curriculum will empower member states to implement CCM programs to make their ATI programs more effective.
