As technological innovations in health care continue to emerge, and as research is confirming the effectiveness of these approaches that rely on both new and established technologies, drug courts across the country are starting to transform the way they work by implementing teleservices in order to improve access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as well as a range of evidence-based psychosocial supports for the treatment of substance use disorders (SUD).

This webinar will:

  • provide an overview of the emerging teleservices landscape and the opportunities brought about by this shift in methodology,
  • review the evidence base for SUD treatment services delivered via teleservices technologies, and
  • share potential strategies for the implementation of SUD teleservices in drug courts, including a review of the types of SUD services that can be effectively leveraged via telehealth along with models of care that highlight the mechanisms of collaboration between drug courts and community-based treatment providers.

Additional topics to be addressed include rolling redesign pertaining to telehealth regulations, reimbursement, and confidentiality, focusing on emerging opportunities for the expansion of teleservices in drug courts.
