The Cutler Institute at the University of Southern Maine was contracted by the Maine Department of Corrections to conduct an independent evaluation of the rollout of the Maine Department of Corrections MAT pilot program. This program evaluation was designed to offer a summative assessment of the implementation experience; to document programmatic policies and procedures to examine whether and/or how these approaches affect program delivery; and to provide feedback to Maine DOC and other key stakeholders to help guide the refinement and expansion of the delivery of MAT in Maine correctional facilities.
