Course Description: The opioid crisis that occurred in 2017 was resultant from an overall increase in opioid-related deaths. Increased arrest and incarceration rates for opioid-dependent individuals were also noted at that time. Consequently, treatment (tx) modalities for opioid addiction were deemed necessary in community, correctional, and post-release community settings. Additionally, incarcerated individuals with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) evidenced decreased opioid tolerance rates.  Approximately 1 in 3 individuals experienced relapse post-release. Opioid relapse, concomitant with decreased tolerance rates, led to an increased risk of overdose.  Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) was/is an effective tx modality that can be employed in correctional and post-release settings. Providers who employ MAT may increase offender tx engagement, reduce criminal recidivism rates, and decrease both relapse and overdose rates.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the importance of providing medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for incarcerated individuals with Opioid Use Disorder both during incarceration and upon release to the community
  2. Understand the US FDA approved medications for OUD tx respective of medication dispensing, effectiveness and prescribing practices
  3. Understand the risks and benefits associated with each medication for OUD tx in correctional and post-release settings
  4. List some examples of MAT supported tx methods/programs and related outcomes
  5. Understand plausible solutions relative to the barriers that are associated with MAT implementation
