COSSAP Webinar: Addressing Misconceptions and Barriers To Medication-Assisted Treatment In Criminal Justice Settings

This webinar will discuss documented misconceptions and barriers to MAT found in criminal justice settings and cover opportunities for reframing misconceptions and developing solutions to overcome these barriers.

Despite a recent increase in MAT in criminal justice settings, comprehensive medication-assisted treatment (offering all three MAT medications) is still underutilized in jails, prisons, and reentry programs. Often, misconceptions about MAT may deter its use in criminal justice settings. Barriers to MAT, such as lack of funding, lack of buy-in from staff, and other challenges, also hinder the implementation of MAT.

This webinar will discuss documented misconceptions and barriers to MAT found in criminal justice settings and cover opportunities for reframing misconceptions and developing solutions to overcome these barriers. Researchers and practitioners will:

  • Describe three common misconceptions and barriers to implementing MAT in criminal justice settings.
  • Discuss one way to reframe a common misconception regarding MAT in criminal justice settings.
  • List potential solutions for a barrier to providing MAT in criminal justice settings.
