408 MOUD Program Medical and Legal Review*

The opioid epidemic continues to pose an extraordinary challenge to society, and it is acutely evident in the correctional setting, where a disproportionately high percentage of the population has opioid use disorder. Correctional facilities face many obstacles to implementing successful MOUD programs, including hiring and training additional staff, budget constraints, and coordinating discharge. This session presents ways to overcome these challenges and covers recent litigation regarding the amendment of the ADA to treat OUD in corrections.

Educational Objectives
  • Discuss implementation of an MOUD program that complies with DOJ, NCCHC, and SAMHSA Guidelines
  • Review challenges to a successful MOUD program
  • Examine recent lawsuits and legal ramifications of inadequate implementation of an MOUD program
