Project Details


The Sheriff’s Women’s Justice Program (SWJP) is a jail diversion program for non-violent drug-using women. The current project provides community reentry services in a transitional clinic setting by Northwestern staff in collaboration with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office and it evaluates the effectiveness of these services in reducing recidivism and substance use relapse. This project will continue to provide post-release services to women who are currently and formerly participants of SWJP who are re -entering the community and who have various levels of involvement with the criminal justice system.
