Course Overview

The Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) series fulfills the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) mission to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities by providing evidence-based and best practice guidance to clinicians, program administrators, and payers.

This TIP was developed to provide recommendations and best practice guidelines to counselors and administrators based on the research literature and the experience of seasoned treatment professionals. It covers the full range of criminal justice settings and all the phases through which an individual progresses in the criminal justice system.
