Yale Expert to Study Opioid Treatments Among Individuals Involved with the Criminal Justice System

Yale School of Medicine researchers will lead one of the sites in a large study designed to reduce opioid overdoses. Dr. Sandra Springer is one of the principal investigators of this multi-site effort supported by a major grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The grant is one of 12 forming the Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network (JCOIN). The network will focus on finding quality treatments for opioid use disorder in criminal justice environments across the nation. The awards will total about $155 million over a multi-year period and involve 10 research institutions and two health centers to provide supportive infrastructure.
