Title of Presentation: Naloxone Education and Distribution in RSAT Programs
Description: This webinar will describe the naloxone education and distribution program in the Rhode Island Department of Corrections (RIDOC) to address the state-wide opioid crisis. Re-entry from incarceration is one of the most, if not the most, vulnerable times for an opioid user. In their jail system, the RIDOC has begun offering education to its inmates, in addition to distributing naloxone upon release. The state of Rhode Island has seen a decrease in overdose deaths since the implementation of this aspect of their Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) program.

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Describe prospective procedures of naloxone distribution programs for individuals leaving prisons and jails
  • Identify potential issues in the distribution of naloxone and strategies to avoid them
  • Explain strategies to reach family members of inmates to educate them about naloxone
