The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Office of Forensic Coordination is excited to announce the launch of the Reentry Learning Collaborative.

The learning collaborative will support local teams in developing comprehensive reentry programs that provide continuity of care and recovery support for people with mental illness or co-occurring substance use disorders who are returning to the community following incarceration in a local jail.

The learning collaborative will provide support along the following pathways:

  • Pre-release reentry services embedded within the corrections agency.

  • In-reach by community-based providers (in-person or via teleservices).

  • One-stop reentry service centers.

  • Reentry services embedded in pretrial or probation agencies.

In addition, learning collaborative members will receive guidance on and discuss the benefits of re-enrollment, linkages to medication support, medical records sharing, and recovery support services, including peer recovery support, housing, transportation, and employment services.
