In collaboration with the New England Association of Drug Court Professionals (NEADCP) and the Opioid Response Network of New England (ORN), we created a webinar series for individuals who wanted to learn more about Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and its role in justice settings. The goal of this webinar was to familiarize professionals in the drug court system with opioid use disorder (OUD) as a disease and its effects. The webinar also explained how MAT works, answered the question “what is the ‘treatment’ in medication assisted treatment,” and examined why the science of OUD is important to effective treatment courts. Leading experts in the field were present to answer discussion questions.

In collaboration with the New England Association of Drug Court Professionals (NEADCP) and the Opioid Response Network of New England (ORN), we developed a second webinar that focused primarily on the impact of stigma on drug court participation in MAT. We discussed common challenges facing patients within the criminal justice population, including criminal thinking, underlying trauma, and stigma. We also discussed stigma with regard to both MAT and the criminal justice population, with special attention to three types of stigma: self-stigma, social stigma, and institutional stigma, including the reluctance to be involved in providing MAT services from an institutional standpoint. Further, we discussed the efficacy of MAT in these populations, as well as existing barriers, and how these relate to the three above-mentioned types of stigma.  A major point of emphasis was that MAT is highly efficacious regardless of whether a patient has a history of criminal involvement.

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials.
