Best Practices for Successful Reentry for People with an Opioid Addiction

Past Event
July 26, 2018, 8:00 am

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center, with funding support from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance

People leaving incarceration and returning to the community face significant challenges; those who also have an opioid addiction face even more, as they have a significantly higher risk of overdose or overdose-related death than the general public. These statistics mean that the staff from the correctional facilities, community-based treatment providers, and probation and parole agencies working with people with an opioid addiction need to be aware of the best practices for supporting them throughout their reentry process. This webinar includes information on planning and coordination, behavioral health treatment, cognitive interventions, and community supervision practices as well as community resources such as housing and recovery support services.
