MAT Utilization in Problem Solving Courts

This project, conducted in collaboration with the Mason Center on Accelerating Correctional Excellence! (ACE!), Friends Research Institute, and the Center for Social Science Research (CSSR). Funded by the National Institute for Drug Abuse (NIDA), the nationwide study examines the use of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) by problem-solving courts to address opioid addiction. This study will assist in understanding two issues: 1) the current utilization of MAT among problem solving courts and 2) the barriers and facilitators to the utilization of MAT. CSSR will survey court coordinators, treatment counselors, and probation officers at a stratified sample.ACE LogoFriends Research Institute
