Title of Presentation: Detoxification vs. Withdrawal Management: The Jail Challenge
Description: Today, by default, jails have become the primary institutions for detoxifying individuals on opioids and other addictive drugs and alcohol. While there is agreement that detoxification is not treatment, there are no agreed upon protocols or standards for detoxification in hospitals and facilities in the community, much less in correctional institutions. There is even disagreement on whether persons with substance use disorders (SUD’s) should undergo detoxification or managed withdrawal and induction of opioid medications. This webinar will discuss the challenges jails and prisons confront with entering individuals suffering withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, including withdrawal related deaths and legal liability, as well as emerging jail and prison protocols for detoxification and withdrawal management.

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the challenges jails and prisons face with increased incarcerated individuals suffering from withdrawal
  • Describe treatment options for individuals with SUD’s in corrections facilities
  • Understand and be able to implement necessary protocols to properly treat incarcerated individuals in need of detoxification services
