Incorporating Medications for Opioid Use Disorder Training into Community Supervision Practices

JSI Logo

The opioid epidemic impacting the United States has become so severe that in recent years substance overdoses, fueled by opioid addictions, has surpassed deaths by car accidents and guns. Further, opioid addiction is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. There has long been a relationship between substance use and criminal justice involvement; and, consequently, overdose deaths from opioids among individuals under supervision have been disproportionately higher than those in the general population. Individuals under community supervision are at higher risk of overdose - particularly when released from custody. This session will help correctional agencies as well as probation officers and parole agents (who are responsible for supervising individuals with opioid and other substance addiction) better understand the efficacy of Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) by implementing practices to support recovery, reduce overdoses, and improve outcomes.
