Our Mission

Pima County’s Inmate Navigation, Enrollment, Support and Treatment (INVEST) Program focuses on the local jail system, through which adults with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders cycle multiple times each year. After returning to the community from incarceration, these individuals must navigate a complex network to access or continue care.  Many end up on the streets, in emergency rooms, and back in jail.  

INVEST seeks to disrupt this cycle of crisis, with a targeted set of screenings, interventions and navigation to mainstream services, that will sustain participants’ recovery, wellness and advancement over the long term.

Our Methods

The INVEST program has both in-custody and post-custody programming.  The in-custody services occur on the grounds of the Pima County Adult Detention Complex, 1279 West Silverlake Road in Tucson, Arizona. The in-custody program’s primary service is forensic peer support focused on psychoeducational services and support; utilizing the Freedom Management Curriculum.  

The post-custody program utilizes a critical time intervention to provide intensive services and support to address clinical needs as well as the social determinants of health.  All services utilize motivational interviewing and are trauma-informed.
