NSA and NCCHC release new resource for jail-based MAT programs

The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) and the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) are pleased to present a resource to support jail administrators in providing effective treatment in a controlled, safe environment. Jail-Based Medication-Assisted Treatment: Promising Practices, Guidelines, and Resources for the Field was developed to guide jails in developing MAT programs. MAT is a cornerstone of best practice for recovery, and treatment using MAT, particularly when coupled with evidence-based behavioral treatment, improves medical and mental health outcomes and reduces relapses and recidivism.
