This webinar will focus on best practices for screening and assessment of people in the criminal justice system who have opioid addictions. Dr. Roger Peters of the University of South Florida will review available screening and assessment instruments, cover instrument selection, and discuss specific considerations for identifying and assessing people who have opioid addictions. Dr. Peters—along with Jac Charlier and Phillip Barbour of the Center for Health and Justice at Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities—will also explain how supplemental screening and assessment questions about opioid use and drugs of choice may assist in the response to the opioid epidemic.
