Beliefs about medications for opioid use disorder among Florida criminal problem-solving court & dependency court staff [2020]

Criminal problem-solving and dependency (child/dependent) court staff refer clients with opioid use disorder (OUD) to treatment and set treatment policies. Negative beliefs regarding the safety and efficacy of medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) have previously been reported in court staff. MOUD is superior to other OUD interventions, is severely underutilized, and is highly effective even in the absence of behavioral treatment.
