Expanding Access to MAT in County Criminal Justice Settings

Project Background
The goal of this SOR-funded project is to increase access to MAT during incarceration and throughout involvement in the justice system. The project features a Learning Collaborative, a technical assistance program available to teams from all California counties interested in developing or expanding access to MAT for opioid use disorder (OUD) in their jails and through their drug court systems. HMA is currently working with multi-agency teams from 32 California counties, and as of June 2020 more than 6,500 jail detainees have received MAT during incarceration. For additional information, contact MATinCountyCJ@healthmanagement.com.
