2019 ACCP Fall Conference - What every correctional practitioner needs to know in a changing world about managing Substance Use Disorder
10/13/2019 - 10/17/2019

This year’s conference will focus on managing Opiate Use Disorder in the correctional setting. A variety of medical, legal, mental health, and substance use disorder experts will help us address: What is the role of counseling in MAT and how do you implement it? What are the challenges of implementing MAT in a small rural jail? A state prison system? How can we reduce deaths from opiate withdrawal after admission? Is MAT a constitutionally mandated treatment – what is the state of current litigation? How can we identify and treat OUD in Isolation Units? What is the role of telemedicine to manage MAT? All this will be sandwiched between two exciting events. To help us think about and prepare for litigation in general, as well as opiate-related issues, the day will begin with the mock deposition - judge in robe and all! - of a physician being sued for the death of a patient in jail from opiate withdrawal, presented by an experienced team of lawyers and physicians. We end the day with ACCP’s highly successful signature event: ACCP Talks to Our Patients. A panel of currently and formally incarcerated patients with OUD will answer audience questions about what works and doesn’t work for OUD during incarceration and transition into and out of confinement. Our patient panels – the real experts in the room – never disappoint!
