Substance Abuse Treatment and Supportive Services for Individuals Returning from Incarceration

Project Reconnect: A United Way SELA & BCM Partner Program



For individuals that have been recently released from incarceration, this CADA re-entry program breaks the cycle of criminal behavior, substance abuse and recidivism by combining psychoeducational support groups and transitional planning in correctional institutions with effective community-based treatment, recovery, and re-entry related services. Project Reconnect works to expand substance abuse treatment and related mental health services available to ex-offenders in the community by providing referrals and follow-up to substance abuse treatment programs. The program is designed to bridge the gap in aftercare by transitioning from re-entry into outpatient substance abuse treatment with a heavy emphasis on individualized case management.

Project Transition: A United Way of St. Charles Partner Program



A highly successful and well-regarded pre-release program for inmates at the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center. Project Transition is a comprehensive life-skills program designed to prepare inmates for life after incarceration and reduce the likelihood of recidivism. Project Transition has been certified by the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections and participants are eligible for an early release date following completion of the program.

HIV& Viral Hepatitis Prevention and Case Management

Project Uplift:

For individuals at-risk for HIV and viral hepatitis 

Project Uplift is designed to bridge the gap between substance abuse, HIV/AIDS and other health services among communities with an increased risk for HIV. This program serves the LGBTQIA community as well as IV-drug users and anyone with an increased risk for HIV/Hep transmission. The Program expands on available services by providing intensive case management, referral to substance abuse and mental health treatment, and HIV/AIDS testing to individuals who are disproportionately affected by addiction and HIV-related health challenges. 

In addition to substance abuse treatment, each participant enrolled in Project UPLIFT will be confidentially counseled and tested for HIV/AIDS and receive caring, individualized case management services from a counselor.
