WDOC In Reach Program 

In March 2020, the Wyoming State Legislature enacted a statute, titled House Bill 31 (HB31). The act requires coordination between WDH and WDOC to develop new programs that improve mental health and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment for persons involved in the correctional system.  The purpose of this bill is to reduce recidivism rates.  This act requires:

In response to HB31, WDOC, in collaboration with the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH), developed the current In-Reach process to assist in reducing the length of wait time between release from incarceration to enrollment with a community treatment provider. 

For substance use disorder treatment (SUD), this process requires the in-prison SUD provider(s) to complete a referral and virtual intake appoint with a community provider for all inmates released with a continued SUD need. This allows offenders to be enrolled as clients with a community provider and continue treatment as soon as possible upon their release.
