Criminal Justice Services
TASC - Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities

TASC offers a critical link between the criminal justice system and treatment services. The primary functions of TASC are: to provide screening and assessment for those referred, provide referral and linkage to treatment services needed, ensure access to available services, as well as monitor and report treatment progress to the referring agent.

Coastal Horizons Center provides TASC services in a total of 32 counties; 31 counties in Eastern North Carolina plus Durham County.

TASC Regional Coordinating Entity

TASC services are available in every county in North Carolina and are organized into four regions that reflect the state's judicial districts and divisions. This structure facilitates communication across court, correctional and treatment systems. Each region is organized and managed via a TASC Regional Coordinating Entity (RCE), a key element of the standardized and integrated statewide network. Coastal Horizons Center, Inc., operates the TASC RCE for Region 1. The TASC RCE serves as the management infrastructure for the effective delivery of substance abuse and other treatment interventions to the offender population in eastern North Carolina. The RCE is the administrative and accountability link between the TASC network and the NC Division Of Mental Health Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services. The RCE is responsible for ensuring that standardized TASC services, hosted by a network of public and private agencies, are available uniformly throughout the region.
