Helping Participants Access Medication for OUD

  • Many treatment courts rely on their team members or local SUD treatment programs to determine whether medication is indicated and to identify qualified medical practitioners.
  • Some treatment programs may have limited or no access to, or familiarity with, medications for OUD. In some cases, programs may be biased against medication. To effectively provide services to treatment court participants, treatment courts must use providers who are able to quickly connect participants with programs and professionals offering evidence-based treatments that include medication.
