The prevalence of substance use disorder (SUD) among individuals involved in the criminal justice (CJ) system is well documented.  There are numerous calls for public health interventions addressing SUD within CJ systems. This session will provide on-the-ground examples of effective health care- criminal justice partnerships at multiple sequential intercepts. Panelists will discuss cognitive behavioral therapy-based and motivational interviewing-based programming in New South Wales prison system and initiatives in Cook County to link individuals to medications for addiction treatment and recovery support in pre-trial services, jail, and adult probation. Through panel discussion and small group exercises, attendees will explore key drivers of successful collaboration as well as challenges and how to address them.

Learning Objectives
– Define the sequential intercept model and how it provides a framework for public health interventions to divert individuals with SUD in the criminal justice system towards health.
– Describe examples of successful health-CJ partnerships in numerous settings including pre-trial, jails and prisons, and adult probation.
– Explain how potentially varying perspectives, goals, responsibilities, and motivations of each stakeholder in a health-CJ partnership may help or hinder effective partnership, and identify potential solutions to any challenges.
