Target Audience: This webcast was developed for judges—whether presiding over state, municipal, general jurisdiction, treatment/specialty courts and/or whether they are law trained or not. 

Webinar Description: This webinar will assist judges who preside over treatment courts as well as criminal courts by identifying what medically assisted treatment is available for opioid use disorders, the efficacy of such treatment, the recommended practice to incorporate this treatment component, and how to improve treatment outcomes by incorporating medically assisted treatment. 


Educational Objectives:

  • Identify and describe the commonly used medication for the treatment of opioid use disorders;
  • Cite why it is the recommended practice to incorporate medication for opioid use disorders;
  • Gain knowledge to dispel myths and inaccuracies about medications for opioid use disorders;
  • Describe how medication maintenance treatment leads to improve outcomes; and
  • Recognize that federally funded treatment courts can not preclude participation because a
    person is on medically assisted treatment.
