Recovery Resources: Getting people out of jail and into recovery
Recovery Resources' Run for Recovery benefits our agency and community in many ways. One of them is by helping people who suffer from a mental illness or substance use disorder get out of jail and into recovery. Forensic Liaison Lindsay Smith works closely with attorneys, probation officers and judges to make that happen. She says if these people can get the care they need, they are less likely to be re-incarcerated and can thrive in their life.
