Pennsylvania’s Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program for Justice-Involved Individuals focuses on achieving better outcomes for individuals with substance use disorders who are reentering society following a period of incarceration. The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections provided Vivitrol injections to a sample of inmates who were returning to society and followed up post-reentry with a monthly shot and cognitive behavioral therapy.
