Addiction Treatment Program for Court-Involved Individuals

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) is conducting a program in select counties providing addiction treatment to individuals who are offenders within the criminal justice system, eligible to participate in MAT drug court, and with dependence on opioids, alcohol or both. The Addiction Treatment Program (ATP) was legislatively established in Section 331.90 of the 2016/2017 State Budget and $11 million was appropriated. Currently, specialty-docket drug courts in 21 counties are included in the program: Allen, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Cuyahoga, Franklin, Gallia, Hardin, Hocking, Jackson, Lake, Lorain, Lucas, Mahoning, Marion, Mercer, Montgomery, Stark, Summit, Trumbull and Warren. These counties are conducting drug court programs certified by the Supreme Court of Ohio. Treatment of eligible adult offenders will be provided by a community addiction services provider certified by OhioMHAS.

The Treatment Research Institute, based in Philadelphia, has been awarded the contract to evaluate the effectiveness of ATP. The evaluation will provide valuable information to the state about process issues (facilitators and barriers) surrounding the uptake of MAT interventions in Drug Courts. This will improve potential adoption in Drug Courts statewide.
