Abstract The ACLU of Maine joined a case on behalf of Brenda Smith, who uses physician-prescribed medication to keep her opioid use disorder in remission. Treatment with MAT enables Ms. Smith to live free from the devastating symptoms of addiction. Most of Maine's jails block incarcerated people from access to MAT. The lawsuit charges this denial of treatment violates the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
