The St. Clair County Intervention and Detention Center, rolling out a new pilot program for inmates wanting help in recovery from opioids. The pilot program, called “Medication Assisted Treatment”, or MAT, begins on May 9th. The program is designed with a multi-prong approach to assist those who are attempting to recover from opioid addiction. Inmates involved in the program will have a variety of medical treatment options. Those in the program will be involved with treatment groups, including one on one counseling. As of now, there are only 12 openings available in the pilot program, which is funded through Federal-State Targeted Response funds from Region 10 Prepaid Inpatient Health Plan, and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Oakland County is already participating in the MAT, with Macomb County scheduled to be a part of the pilot program in the near future.
