Medication-Assisted Treatment in the Courthouse: Exploring Franklin County, Ohio’s Success

Event Dates

This webinar is the first in a series on medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs in the justice system. It will focus on a court that uses MAT as an integral part of its process and offers a clinic inside the courthouse. The Franklin County court helps individuals on probation, or who will be on probation, access Naltrexone-based MAT services, peer recovery, housing, and other supports necessary for success in the community. The webinar will spotlight how and which services are offered to program participants.

Participants will learn how innovative efforts transformed a courthouse to better meet the needs of individuals and how collaboration among a court, service providers, a case manager, and peer support contributes to a safe and nurturing environment.
