The Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network

Goal: Improve access to high-quality, evidence-based addiction treatment in justice settings.

Much research already points to the benefits of increasing access to treatment for opioid use disorders for justice-involved populations; however, it is unknown how many effective programs exist in different jurisdictions around the country, and which specific strategies are most effective. This project will create a network of researchers who can rapidly conduct studies aimed at exploring the effectiveness and adoption of medications, interventions, and technologies in those settings; and finding ways to use existing data sources as well as developing new research methods to ensure that interventions have the maximum impact. It will include implementing a national survey of addiction treatment delivery services in local and state justice systems.
