Saving Lives with MAT

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs in jails have shown value in reducing recidivism and improving local communities. NaphCare has worked with clients to obtain millions in grant funding and in-kind contributions to support MAT programs, saving lives while providing continuity of care.

Stabilizing the Mental Health Crisis in Jails

Across the United States, there are more individuals with severe mental illness (SMI) in jails than public and private psychiatric hospitals, though treatment resources are far more scarce in correctional than clinical settings. With well-intentioned motivation, correctional facilities attempt to protect this vulnerable – often traumatized – population by separating them from the general population. Unfortunately, we have learned the harmful consequences that can occur with social isolation and segregated housing. NaphCare – in conjunction with our correctional partners at Hillsborough County Jail in Tampa, Florida – developed a new model for providing mental health care in a correctional environment.

"Inpatient hospital stays have been reduced. Off-site medical visits were reduced. Ambulance trips reduced. Contracts were established with local hospitals and healthcare providers negotiating outcome fee-for-service charges that proved cost effective to county taxpayers.”
