Webinar - County Roles and Opportunities in Opioid Treatment for Justice-Involved Individuals

Thursday Feb 08, 2018 - 02:00pm to 03:15pm EST
Event Description: 

Counties are uniquely positioned to lead efforts to advance safety and justice, as they run 91 percent of all jails with nearly 11 million people admitted every year. Join the National Association of Counties for a three-part webinar series that will focus on key areas of local criminal justice systems that most affect counties and offer strategies counties can employ to address these issues, make their justice systems work more effectively and efficiently, and ultimately lead to safer and healthier communities. Counties face many challenges in trying to treat opioid misuse and addiction in justice-involved individuals. This webinar will explore strategies counties can take to address this issue, including community-based treatment, treatment within the justice system, and reentry planning.
