The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute works in partnership with state and local agencies to reduce the incidence and prevalence of substance abuse and addiction among children and adults in Indiana.
ICJI’s Executive Director is a member of the Indiana Commission to Combat Drug Abuse. ICJI’s Behavioral Health Division (formerly Substance Abuse Division) supports the work of local coordinating councils (LCCs) representing 91 Indiana counties.
Each year LCCs are charged with implementing comprehensive community plans that address substance abuse through treatment, prevention and enforcement. ICJI's Behavioral Health Division lends leadership and expertise in the development of these comprehensive strategies to ensure that resources needed to treat substance abuse are effectively targeted.
