Building Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care
Treatment courts make it possible for participants to begin a recovery journey that will hopefully last a lifetime. Their long-term recovery will benefit them, their families, and their communities. Over 23 million Americans are in recovery, and each sustains their recovery in the communities where they live and work (Rondo & Feliz, 2012). Professionals and recovery community members have been partnering to create a supportive environment that connects participants with a broader, community-based system of services and support, bridging the gap between the treatment and recovery communities.
Naloxone: Overview and Considerations
Approximately one in five people who use heroin will have an overdose each year, and about one in one hundred will die from an overdose. Pharmaceutical opioids such as morphine, codeine, oxycodone, and methadone also are involved in many overdoses. With brief training, people who use heroin and other opioids, and members of their families and social networks, can effectively recognize and respond to an opioid overdose and successfully administer naloxone, the opioid overdose antidote.
Medication for Opioid Use Disorders
Ensuring the safe, effective, and responsible use of medication for addiction treatment in treatment courts.
Alternatives to Opioids for Chronic Pain Relief
Chronic pain increases the risk for noncompliance with substance use treatment and complicates recovery efforts. An understanding of the alternatives to opioids for the treatment of chronic pain may help treatment court professionals provide more effective assistance to participants.
