    • Abstract:
      The article discusses medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for prisoners in need of treatment for opioid abuse and argues that correctional facility staff violate the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution when refusing to institute MAT programs. It examines the deliberate indifference standard of the Eighth Amendment, standards of decency concerning MAT, and MAT in prisons.
