County Touchpoints in Access to MAT for Justice-Involved Populations
County Touchpoints: Learning Collaborative for Los Angeles County Criminal Justice and Child Welfare Agencies
Los Angeles, CA
March 12, 2020, 8:30am-4:30pm
The County Touchpoints in Access to MAT for Justice-Involved Populations project is focused on outreach, education, and training about opioid addiction and treatment in county criminal justice and human service systems. The project is managed by Health Management Associates and California Health Policies Strategies LLC.
DHCS created this project to provide training and technical assistance to leaders, managers, and line staff in key positions of interface with the justice involved population.
Between August 2019 and September 2020, a series of training programs will be provided in a Learning Collaborative model across the state. The project team will engage leaders in a training program and invite them to commit the participation of their key managers in a second round of training and key line staff in a third round. Each training session will include didactic content and breakout sessions using discipline-specific workbooks with relevant case studies, resources, and discussion questions. Sessions will also be professionally videotaped and made available through a project website.
Participating organizations will also be eligible to participate in topic-specific webinars that highlight case studies and circumstances unique to that discipline. Where possible, educational sessions and webinars will provide profession-specific continuing education credits. Finally, participating organizations will also be able to request on-site technical assistance in overcoming local barriers to the use of MAT.
The following respected criminal justice and human service leaders have joined the project team to bring this important opportunity to their peers:
Judge Len Edwards (retired), Juvenile Courts
