Meeting People Where They Are: Corrections, Telehealth, and OUD

Recorded: Thursday, March 31, 2022 - Sunday, April 3, 2022
On-Demand Session


This 1-hour, on-demand session from the ASAM 53rd Annual Conference addresses the implementation of a collaborative, replicable model for addiction care at correctional sites with a particular emphasis on workflow and getting all members of the team on board.

Opioid Use Disorder does not disappear during incarceration and is not cured upon re-entry. Instead, people face profound hazards inside the walls and after release. Telehealth allows for scaled, effective, medication-based treatment during and after incarceration, especially with regulatory easing that began with the Covid-19 pandemic and is planned to be made permanent. The telehealth company, Boulder Care, partnered with Jackson County Community Justice in southern Oregon to create a treatment model that addresses pain points for both correctional sites and telehealth teams. The model Boulder Case uses is designed to be readily replicated among a variety of types of correctional settings in different geographies by distinct clinical organizations. Participants in this session will review approaches to partnering and deploying the model, examine areas that may need troubleshooting, and obtain their own detailed description of workflow so as to best facilitate replication.

The target audience for this Intermediate level session includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, other clinicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, and counselors.

This session addresses the following ACGME Competencies: Patient Care and Procedural Skills, Practice-based Learning and Improvement, Professionalism, System Based Practice.

Please Note: That recent legislation has removed the waiver requirement to prescribe buprenorphine. Some of the course content and descriptions refer to the waiver and we appreciate your patience as we work to update this content. To learn more about federal buprenorphine prescribing regulations, check out Policies Governing Buprenorphine for Opioid Use Disorder.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, learners will be able to:

  1. Describe barriers to care of opioid use disorder (OUD) in correctional settings.
  2. Explain how a telehealth-based approach to OUD, together with certain roles and workflows, can successfully be implemented in corrections.
  3. Consider next steps the participant could take to develop this treatment approach in places where they can partner with corrections.
