Webinar: Opioid Use Disorder, MAT, and Stigma: The Impact of Stigma on Drug Court Participating Accessing MAT

For RECOVERY COACH TRAININGS sponsored by BSAS, go to the Recovery Coach Training page.

Sponsored by BSAS: 

This webinar will focus primarily on the participant experience within the drug court system and using MAT as a treatment for opioid use disorder. We aim to discuss the challenges present within the criminal justice population, including criminal thinking, underlying trauma, and stigma. We will discuss stigma with regard to both MAT and the criminal justice population, with special attention to three types of stigma: Self-stigma, social stigma, and institutional stigma, including the reluctance to be involved in providing MAT services from an institutional standpoint. Further, we will discuss the efficacy of MAT in these populations, as well as existing barriers, and how these relate to the three above mentioned types of stigma. A driving take away point we hope to impress on attendees is that the evidence and efficacy of MAT for opioid use disorders is there and that the biology of a criminally involved person is the same as someone who is not.
