Why must counties and courts ensure that incarcerated persons are provided medication assisted treatment (MAT) in alignment with prevailing standards?
Lawsuits arising from denial of access to treatment for substance use continue to proliferate in California and across the country. Keegan Warren, JD, LLM will offer an overview of litigation resulting in counties and even courts being found liable for impeding access, and will summarize what these cases teach about developing lifesaving approaches to substance use. This webinar will help attendees:
- Identify the statutory and regulatory bases for litigation of
access to MAT.
- Analyze judicial decisions increasing access to MAT.
- Examine to what extent institutional policies and practices
align with best practices for MAT
