Expanding Evidence-Based Opioid Use Disorder E-therapy Treatment and Recovery Services for Criminal Justice Populations During the COVID-19 Pandemic

During the pandemic, many drug courts and diversion programs have been unable to refer participants to in-person treatment programs. Addiction Policy Forum will offer criminal justice–involved individuals free access to their Connections mobile app, which has been shown to improve outcomes in several clinical trials. The app offers on-demand treatment and supports from addiction specialists and peers and can be customized to users’ particular needs.
