Medication-assisted Treatment in Correctional Settings: Notes from the Field

Presented in partnership with the SAMHSA GAINS Center.

The use of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for substance use disorders inside correctional settings is growing as jurisdictions seek to more effectively address the opioid epidemic. This webinar will provide an overview of the national conversation around implementing medication assisted treatment in correctional settings and emerging promising practices observed in the field. Participants will hear from policy, law enforcement, and medical experts regarding practical considerations around implementing MAT in this setting. Two programs currently offering the full spectrum of MAT options will share information about best practices, lessons learned, and program outcomes.

Religious ministries have the potential to help jail staff, incarcerated people, and family members.  Too often, unfortunately, there is unintended friction between jail staff and religious volunteers.  This friction can interfere with the success of jail ministries.  By discussing key issues before the religious ministry begins, jail staff can decrease potential problems and increase benefits.

National Center For Jail Operations

The National Center For Jail Operations, a division of the NSA Global Center for Public Safety, was formed in 2011 at the request of sheriffs across the United States. Recognizing that jails are one of the most litigious and largest liability concerns a sheriff faces, and the fact that sheriffs operate over 85% of the jails in the United States, it makes sense that the National Sheriffs’ Association focuses its efforts on providing leadership, resources and training for jails.
