Target Audience

If you are a pharmacist, nurse practitioner or other healthcare professional involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric patients, we invite you to participate in this online course.

Session Summary

There are high rates of substance use disorders, including opioid use disorder, in patients in the correctional system. Access to medications for OUD vary from state to state. Lack of access to treatment upon transition to the community after release has been implicated in relapse, overdose, and high rates of recidivism.

Pharmacists who care for patients with psychiatric disorders often encounter patients who have been recently released from jail/prison and who are in need of continued care for OUD.

Multiple organizations and recent publications have focused on barriers to care and the need to identify ways to successfully transition patients from the criminal justice system into society without a break in treatment to reduce negative outcomes.
