Expanding MAT in County Criminal Justice Settings in California
This program provides technical and financial assistance for teams from all California counties interested in developing or expanding access to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction in their jails and through their drug court systems.
Program activities will take place between August 2018 and March 2019 and will include:
- 3 in-person learning collaboratives
- Monthly coaching calls
- Topic-specific webinars and podcasts
- A resource library and discussion group mailing lists
- Access to the project advisory group
- Information on best practices in treating OUD in special populations within the criminal justice system, such as youth, pregnant women, Native Americans, and those with co-occurring mental health disorders
- Technical assistance and training on developing and implementing data collection measures
Eligible applicants are teams from all California counties interested in developing or expanding access to MAT for opioid addiction in their jails and through their drug court systems. Teams must commit to participating for the full duration of the learning collaborative.
Each participating team will receive up to $25,000 to be used for travel expenses to the Learning Collaboratives and/or staff compensation. Mid-way through the project, additional funds will be made available to participating counties to purchase naloxone kits for treating drug overdoses.
