Grants and Contracts Details


The University of Kentucky College of Medicine, Department of Behavioral Science, in conjunction with the UK Center on Drug and Alcohol Research, will be responsible for conducting the evaluation for the Kentucky Department of Corrections, Division of Addiction Services, KORE-funded project to expand medication assisted-treatment (MAT) in three prison sites. The evaluation approach can be described as a pre/post test design. The design includes baseline CJKTOS data as individuals enter treatment, and follow-up measures at 3 and 6 months post baseline for substance-using individuals in treatment and seeking MAT services using the Hazelden Core-12 model. The evaluation has three primary objectives: (1) To describe client characteristics at treatment entry into MAT services; (2) To examine short-term project outcomes at 3-months based on intensity and duration of treatment; and (3) To examine longer term outcomes at 6 months post treatment entry. The evaluation will include a focus on the 3 tracks of the Core-12 treatment approach including no MAT, Vivitrol, and buprenorphine. Data reporting requirements will be met through the DOC established Criminal Justice Kentucky Treatment Outcome Study (CJKTOS) and supplemented with Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures.
