New principles for care of correctional facilities inmates with substance use disorders have been suggested in the United States. We offer a Russian translation of the position statement.
In November 2016, the U.S. National Commission on Correctional Health Care, NCCHC) published a position statement on "Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Adults and Adolescents." The statement primarily focuses on alcohol, benzodiazepine and opioid use disorders.
It advocates principles for care of inmates with substance use disorders in correctional facilities that reinforce and expand on principles articulated in NCCHC’s Standards for Health Services.
The position statement reflects scientific evidence and new national guidelines (ASAM National Practice Guideline for the Use of Medications in the Treatment of Addiction Involving Opioid Use) for treatment of opioid use disorders. It is intended to ensure that people with substance use disorders in custody receive evidence-based care in accordance with national medical standards.
