This study used a predictive model to examine the potential impact of screening and treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD) within prisons and jails on opioid-related mortality after release. The model results indicate that widespread uptake of screening and treatment both within prisons and jails and post-release would substantially reduce opioid-related deaths by thousands.
