The DUI MAT Integration/Outreach Project is funded by the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), MAT Expansion Project, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Approximately 118,000 people enroll in DUI programs each year. Currently, there are no mechanisms in place to identify, assess, refer, and manage OUD/PolySUD in DUI treatment programs. This project has been developed to optimize DUI Programs to become new and effective access points for MAT and other treatment modalities. The data collected determines the population of OUD persons who can be reached through interaction with the DUI treatment system. Once completed, the program can be updated with best practices and launched to all California DUI programs.
This program has the potential to reduce DUI recidivism, increase public safety on the roadways, and help more people suffering from OUD and PolySUD.
