Home Study
$7.00

This webinar is designed to introduce mental health professionals to the latest structure and implementation of evidence-based practices and service delivery models to prevent substance misuse amongst individuals with opioid use disorders (OUD). This course examines medication-assisted treatments (MAT) for opioid use disorders, specifically in criminal justice settings, which have particularly high risk of relapse. This course addresses cultural and demographic considerations that are unique to this clinical population, both during and after treatment. It also identifies characteristics and appropriateness each of the standard medications used, and addresses the challenges encountered by MAT programs. This course provides a resource guide to treating OUD in criminal justice settings and addresses the policies and practices that can mitigate the risk of opioid abuse, overdose, and relapse both during an individual’s time in the correctional system and upon release.
The webinar reviews the latest research in the implementation of medication assisted treatment for opioid use disorders in criminal justice settings. It also draws on instructor Dr. Gloria Lee’s clinical experience at a psychiatric forensic hospital at a maximum-security prison, intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment programs, and in community-based crime prevention and post-incarceration services.
