PRESENTATION: The National Drug Court Institute determined that, “Under no circumstances should a drug court have a blanket prohibition against MAT as a matter of policy.” And yet, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) remains a controversial concept within the criminal justice system, including Drug Treatment Courts. This workshop will examine the myths, misunderstandings and stigma attached to the use of MAT with offenders with Opioid Use Disorder and other Substance Use Disorders among the partners who make up Drug Treatment Court Teams, including many counselors and providers. This Workshop will explore the different types of MAT medications and their use, the matching of clients with MAT resources, the potential barriers to effective MAT in Drug Treatment Court settings, the difficulties in supervision of offenders on MAT in the community, the benefits and risks involved in integrating MAT into Drug Treatment Courts and strategies for how to minimize those risks.
As a result of attending this training, participants will be able to: identify the different types of MAT and their implications; draw parallels between the goals of MAT and the goals of Drug Treatment Courts; develop strategies for balancing client choice with offender supervision in offering and supervising the use, misuse and diversion of MAT medications; and examine the pros and cons of integrating vs. separate treatment for offenders receiving MAT.
