Opioid use disorders (OUD) are particularly hard on homeless populations, where the prevalence of mental health conditions and substance misuse is high, and health care access is often limited.
Join us, January 11, from 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EST, for a webinar to examine how resources to address the opioid crisis can be leveraged for people experiencing homelessness. Federal and local officials will discuss what's happening around the country to address the crisis, highlighting a successful housing program for people with OUD. There will also be a discussion about how service providers can connect with state agencies to elevate issues related to homelessness to the forefront of the opioid crisis.
The Centre will analyze how to most effectively prevent and tackle homelessness. It will help policymakers, commissioners, and front-line practitioners build and use evidence, and support them to make effective use of resources to improve impact. In all its work, the Centre will strive to make evidence accessible through training, support for innovation, and interactive tools.
