Bexar County jail drug treatment program has faith in pricey shots
from Texas Public Radio
Bexar County will test a new drug treatment program for county jail inmates that uses a medication that costs $1,000 a dose, but members of the county’s Joint Opioid Task Force think it will be worth the expense. The program will be the first in Bexar County to use shots of naltrexone -- under the brand name Vivitrol -- to treat addicted inmates before and after they are released from jail.
