Overview

Criminal Justice Systems concentrate large numbers of addicted persons, yet historically do little to treat these underlying addiction disorders.  Medication Assisted Treatments (MAT) for smoking, alcohol, and opioid use disorders are rarely promoted or accessible among incarcerated or community-supervised (i.e. parole) individuals.  This is despite a growing body of high quality evidence emphasizing the effectiveness of MAT in CJS populations, as they are in community treatment settings.  Treatment and criminal justice reform proposals increasingly highlight and address these historic deficiencies, with an aim of expanding access to MAT across the board. 

This session will describe recent trends in CJS populations and intersections with the US opioid epidemic, detail clinical trials examining the application of MAT in CJS populations, and give context to recent and proposed policies impacting CJS and opioid use disorders.   

Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 5U79TI026556-03 from SAMHSA.
