Description: This webinar will summarize current research on the three FDA approved medications for opioid use disorder specifically for justice-involved individuals. It will summarize the research on the effectiveness of the medications as well as the differences among them. Effectiveness will be broken down in regard to recidivism, recovery, retention in treatment, and well-being. The webinar will also present the findings on the impact of when MAT is begun, during or after incarcerations, and with or without concurrent psychosocial treatment. The research will also be described on the diversion of medication in jails and prisons.

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Describe four of the major benefits found for MAT for OUD
  • Analyze at least one benefit and challenge presented by each of the 3 FDA-approved opioid medications
  • Describe the impact of beginning MAT during versus after incarceration for OUD
