The Effects of Opioid Use on Life After Prison

Dec. 8, 2022 -- The U.S. has a huge problem with opioid use and addiction among inmates. We also have some of the highest crime recidivism  – or reoffence – rates in the world. We asked Brendan Saloner, PhD, associate professor of Addiction and Overdose at John Hopkins, to talk about how those two things are related. He also discusses the culture of incarceration, opioid use disorder, and comprehensive reentry support upon release from jail or prison.
