Justice Community Opioid Intervention Network

Overview

Many individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) pass through the criminal justice system over the course of their life. Improved access to high-quality, evidence-based addiction treatment in justice settings will be critical to addressing the opioid crisis. Through the Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network (JCOIN), the National Institutes of Health will study approaches to increase high-quality care for people with opioid misuse and OUD in justice populations. The Network will test strategies to expand effective treatment and care in partnership with local and state justice systems and community-based treatment providers.

Highlights

JCOIN will include:

  • A national survey of addiction treatment delivery services within the justice system
  • Studies on the effectiveness and adoption of new medications, prevention and treatment interventions, and technologies
  • Novel uses of existing data sources for understanding care in justice populations.

Together, these studies will generate real-world evidence to address the unique needs of individuals with OUD in justice settings.
