Results from UWPHI research on Treatment Alternatives and Diversion (TAD) in Wisconsin are presented in the April 2012 Wisconsin Counties Magazine, the official publication of the Wisconsin Counties Association. The article includes spotlights on how many individuals have enrolled and the cost effectiveness of the program in participating counties. According to the research, “for every $1 invested in TAD, benefits of $1.93 to the criminal justice system through averted incarceration and reduced crime” are saved. Additionally, “The analysis further indicates that a total of 135,118 incarceration days (86,530 jail days and 48,588 prison days) were averted by TAD discharges.” Benefits of the program also include that TAD graduates are less likely to be convicted of a new offense after completing the program.
