As individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) transition out of correctional facilities and back into society, they are at greatest risk for experiencing an overdose. In response, some states are implementing incarceration-based OUD treatment programs and linking individuals to treatment upon their release. This webinar features state correctional leaders from Maine and Pennsylvania who have overseen implementation of incarceration-based treatment for OUD programs.
They shared how these programs were initially formed and funded, what challenges they experienced along the way, and initial successes and lessons learned.
