Ingham County announced it has been selected to participate in a national program to expand medication assisted treatment for opioid use disorder in jails. 

The county will receive expert guidance on how to overcome barriers to providing opioid treatment and scholarships for staff members to attend trainings in Washington, D.C. 

Experts will work with jail officials to create treatment guidelines, manage administration of the medications and educate jail staff about addiction. 

The Ingham County team includes six people representing the Ingham County Health Department; the Ingham County Sheriff’s Department; the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office; the 55th District Court-Probation and Treatment Courts Division; and Community Mental Health of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham Counties. 

“With the expertise, dedication and resources of the Ingham County team, I know we will bring home and implement real change to improve the health of inmates and those released back into the community,” said Linda S. Vail, Ingham County health officer.
