The second webinar, "Opioid Use Disorder, MAT and Stigma: The Impact of Stigma on Drug Court Participating Accessing MAT," was held on May 29th, 2019. This webinar focused primarily on the participant experience within the drug court system and using MAT as a treatment for opioid use disorder. It discussed the challenges present within the criminal justice population, including criminal thinking, underlying trauma, and stigma. A driving take away point of this webinar was that that the evidence and efficacy of MAT for opioid use disorders is there and that the biology of a criminally involved person is the same as someone who is not.
