Webinar: Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) in Prison and Re-entry Programs
January 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST
A White House-hosted webinar on January 13, 2017 from 3-4 p.m. (EST) will highlight examples of MAT programs as viable and beneficial components of prison and re-entry services for individuals with opioid use disorders.
- The Kentucky Department of Corrections implemented an MAT program in state corrections facilities and county jails. The program is consistent with the Bureau of Prisons model of administering two injections of extended-release injectable naltrexone prior to release. Kentucky Department of Corrections is working with the University of Kentucky to evaluate criminal justice and treatment outcomes.
- The Rhode Island Department of Corrections is a combined prison and jail system that implemented a statewide Medication Assisted Treatment program, offering methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone. Inmates can continue to stay on MAT up to one year while incarcerated and can receive MAT prior to release. Rhode Island Department of Corrections is working with Brown University to conduct a program assessment.
