Re: “Despite New Law, Vermont Inmates Denied Addiction Treatment

This story is incomplete. The title and graphic would give the appearance that the DOC is not complying with the law, but the narrative of the article does not support the title or graphic. I get it, the headlines sells the story, but when the article itself in no way supports the title, then shame on you! Within the body of the article it states that the DOC may provide the drug if medically necessary. So, the missing and important questions that were either not asked, or included in this article are:

Of all of those inmates who wanted (requested) the drug, how many were found to be medically necessary?

What factors determine medical necessity?

How many were simply drug seeking without a substance use disorder?

How many requested the drug so that they might be able to divert and sell the drug making incredible profits?

What are the medical standards and how does the DOC's implementation of this program compare to the standards?

How does Vermont DOC compare to other correctional departments in the delivery of this drug?

What do medical professionals with expertise in this area have to say about the DOC's implementation?
