Improving Continuity of Care for Justice-Involved Individuals: Lessons from the Field (On-Demand)


Target Audience:
 This activity is designed for administrative staff, counselors, interprofessional teams, psychologists, and social workers. 

Webinar Description: Transitioning from jails and prisons back into the community can be especially difficult for people with opioid use disorders (OUD). Research suggests that opioid use overdose increases dramatically within the first 30 days of citizens returning to the community. Further, individuals recently released from incarceration face a risk of opioid overdose ten times greater than the general public. During these transitions it is critical that people receive seamless and appropriate resources in order to prevent overdose and return to use. This proper transition can help lower health care costs, hospitalizations and emergency department visits, as well as decrease mortality and recidivism for justice-involved individuals, yet at this time only 13 states have sought Medicaid waivers to provide SUD services pre-release. Join us today as we explore how programs can successfully develop services to ensure returning citizens receive appropriate care to address OUD.

Educational Objectives:

  • Review the context of opioid crisis and its intersection with the jails and prisons.
  • Examine the components of a successful jail-based opioid treatment program.
  • Discuss continuity of care planning for patients reentering the community from incarceration with OUD.
  • Describe a program that collaborates with community health care collaborators.
