Medication Assisted Treatment Program
The Roosevelt County Detention Center (RCDC) implemented a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program in 2021. The Mission of this program is to recognize and reduce the risk of post-release overdose death and recidivism in our community. The goal is to strengthen communication and collaboration between RCDC personnel and community partners to support individuals throughout their incarceration, from booking to release, to sustain recovery, reduce recidivism and improve public safety. The MAT program provides therapy and discharge services within the facility, as well as reentry support services to assist individuals with the transition from detention back to the community and improve chances for success.
RCDC utilizes two FDA approved medications for opiate use disorder, specifically naltrexone and buprenorphine. Naltrexone is also FDA approved and utilized for alcohol use disorder, and is used for this within the facility.
The MAT program includes the following classes/services –
Matrix For Criminal Justice Settings
Thinking For Good
Group and individual counseling sessions that target coping skills
12 Step Meetings – Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous
