Telehealth Services Pilot Project, Marietta Municipal Court (OH) Case Study

Updated: Oct 16



To provide safety net support support and services during the pandemic, the Marietta Municipal Court, in partnership with the Addiction Policy Forum and Foundation for Opioid Response Efforts (FORE), expanded telehealth support to justice involved substance use disorder (SUD) patients during the pandemic.


The Marietta pilot served 29 individuals with substance use disorder during the pandemic, providing an evidence-based smartphone app for recovery support; CBT4CBT, a digital therapeutics platform that delivers cognitive behavioral therapy, proactive engagement of highest-risk clients; and recovery support services from Addiction Policy Forum that included a weekly forum, support groups, and peer / social worker sessions.


Outcomes:


Marietta participants reported significant improvements in sleep, participation in work, school, and volunteering, increased time with supportive people and increased confidence in recovery / abstinence, as well as reductions in relationship troubles and risky situations.
