146 Fighting Opioid Use Disorder From Overdose to Reentry: How Public Health Practices Can Inform Public Safety

A collaborative effort among the Middlesex Sheriff?s Office, service providers, and community health agencies led to the Medication Assisted Treatment and Directed Opioid Recovery program, a nationally recognized model for treating opioid use disorder. This presentation will discuss the development of MATADOR from a single MAT program to a full treatment model and national best practice, and data collection efforts underway that show it is improving both public health and safety.

Learning Objectives:

  • Compare the complex medical, legal, and operational considerations for providing MAT in a correctional setting with those same considerations in a community setting
  • Discuss the regulations governing the development of an opioid treatment program and how they have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Examine the lessons learned from the early stages of MATADOR
