New Resource: Toolkit on Expanding Access to MOUD in Correctional Settings

According to the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, 65 percent of the U.S. prison population meets the medical criteria for drug or alcohol use disorders but less than 11 percent receives treatment for those illnesses. The National Governors Association and the American Correctional Association recently released a new toolkit on “Expanding Access to Medications for Opioid Use Disorder in Corrections and Community Settings: A Roadmap for States to Reduce Opioid Use Disorder for People in the Justice System.”

The full toolkit can be found here.
