About National TASC
Many TASC programs have evolved to provide services to those in need of mental health services, as well as families involved in abuse and neglect cases. The TASC model of service is to provide assessment, treatment, or referral to treatment, case management, and monitoring and reporting services. TASC programs provide an integrated system of care in meeting the needs of the justice system, the treatment system, and, most of all, the client. TASC programs work with courts (including drug courts), and corrections to ensure treatment is available for community-based supervision, and institutional aftercare.
