Webinar: JCOIN and CLA – Reentry Planning for People with Opioid Use Disorder

As corrections directors grapple with the increasing complexity of reentry into the community, the demands of services and coordination are particularly acute for individuals with opioid use disorders. Among this population, the risk of overdose death significantly increases during the first two weeks following release. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated these challenges, with increased pressure to release individuals into the community to minimize the risk of exposure.

This webinar, hosted by the Correctional Leaders Association (CLA) in partnership with NIH's Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network (JCOIN), discussed the latest research, science and innovation around mitigating risk during reentry for people with opioid use disorders.
