OBAT HOC program:
BHCHP has partnered with the Suffolk County House of Correction to implement a novel intervention to expand access to medication for addiction treatment (MAT) for incarcerated, homeless individuals. This work is being funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and takes place at South Bay House of Correction (SBHOC). Prior to release, individuals receive comprehensive opioid use disorder (OUD) care to include intensive care coordination, individual and/or group behavioral health care, recovery coaching, and medication (in the 30 days prior to release).

The goal is to serve 200 unique individuals total across the three-year grant period. To be eligible for this service, individuals must meet the following criteria:

  • Homeless in Boston, and/or connected to BHCHP for care
  • Opioid Use Disorder
  • Sentenced
  • Located at SBHOC
