The National Reentry Resource Center (NRRC) recently released the fact sheet “Best Practices for Successful Reentry for People Who Have Opioid Addictions,” which contains 10 recommendations to help people with opioid addictions obtain pre- and post-release treatment, as well as informed supervision, during the reentry process.
In the fact sheet, correctional, community-based behavioral health, and probation and parole professionals will find best practices to support people returning from incarceration, who often face a higher risk for relapse, overdose, and overdose-related death than the general public. NRRC grouped these best practices into the following categories: planning and coordination, behavioral health treatment and cognitive behavioral interventions, probation and parole supervision, and recovery support services.
NRRC is a collaborative project among the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Council of State Governments Justice Center, and other key partners.
