New York s Adolescent Diversion Pilot Parts, which link age-appropriate services for 16 and 17 year olds, have been created across the state and are designed to improve the way the criminal justice system treats these adolescents charged in criminal court.

Scientific research has firmly established the effectiveness of MAT to treat opiate addiction, yet many criminal justice agencies deny access to MAT even if it is medically appropriate and prescribed by a physician. Reasons range from concerns that MAT is substituting one addiction for another to policies that prohibit the use of all prescribed controlled substances and concerns about diversion. This presentation will explain why such broad-brushed practices can violate anti-discrimination laws and, in correctional facilities, the United States Constitution, while also undermining public health and safety. Presenter: Sally Friedman, JD, Legal Director, Legal Action Center Room MAC 130 F) Evidence-Based Practices-Cognitive Behavioral Programming Effectiveness *CLE Eligible Session The NYS BHO is contracted to monitor fee-for-service inpatient behavioral health services for Medicaid individuals in OMH and OASAS licensed facilities, as well as outpatient services for children and youth diagnosed with a serious emotional disturbance (SED) who receive treatment in OMH-designated specialty clinics and are covered by Medicaid Managed Care.
