Understanding Homelessness, the Opioid Epidemic, and Effective Interventions

July 31, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Please join us to discuss the well-established interrelationship of homelessness and the opioid epidemic. In this webinar, subject matter experts will identify subpopulations of people experiencing homelessness who are at higher risk of opioid use ramifications, including overdose death. Treatment approaches to opioid use disorders, such as medication-assisted treatment, and their effectiveness will be featured. Subject matter experts will review signs and symptoms of overdose, following up with responses that save lives and support recovery.

Webinar participants are encouraged to pose questions and share comments at the follow-up discussion that will take place on August 3, 2020, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. (ET).
