  • With Sally Friedman, Legal Action Center (February 2017)

    Criminal justice and child welfare agencies often order individuals off medication-assisted treatment (MAT) against their physicians’ recommendations. This practice has occurred for decades, resulting in countless relapses, unnecessary incarcerations, destroyed families, and even deaths. Legal Action Center (LAC) attorneys will explain how to effectively advocate for their individuals’ right to MAT, how treatment providers can serve as expert witnesses, and how to work with LAC to identify test-case litigation challenging these practices. The presenters will discuss relevant laws, advocacy strategies detailed in LAC’s MAT Advocacy Toolkit, and LAC’s ground-breaking report, “Medication-Assisted Treatment in Drug Courts: Recommended Strategies.”
