Opioid Use Disorder and Mass Incarceration

Opioid Use Disorder and Mass Incarceration
Recording: Opioid Use Disorder and Mass Incarceration, Mar 10, 2019

Jails are killing us. Inmates are 130 times more likely than the general population to overdose in the first 2 weeks after release from prison - and there is strong research showing proven approaches to prevent these overdoses. The panelists will discuss why people in the criminal justice system are at increased risk for death and what startups and community members can do to reduce mortality and taxpayer spending on mass-incarceration.
