Expanding Access to MAT in County Criminal Justice Settings

In 2018, Health Management Associates (HMA) launched the first cohort of Expanding Access to MAT in County Criminal Justice Settings learning collaborative in 23 California counties under contract with California’s Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) with State Opioid Response (SOR) I funding. In spring 2020, additional counties joined, bringing the total to 32 counties which covered more than 80% of the state’s population. In September 2020, county teams who participated under SOR I as were invited to apply to continue in the learning collaborative under SOR II. New counties were also encouraged and invited to participate. Throughout 2021-2022, 32 CA counties participated under SOR II and 27 of these counties received an implementation grant. Implementation grants were used to supplement staffing costs, purchase medications, increase behavioral health services, provide harm reduction, develop reentry resources and support, and more. All project artifacts and resources have been archived on this website page. If you have any questions, please email MATinCountyCJ@healthmanagement.com.
