Treatment While Unhoused: Providing MOUD to Populations Experiencing Homelessness

May 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

National Council for Mental Well Being, 4/23/24
More than 111,000 people died from a drug overdose in the 12-month period ending September 2023, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Unhoused individuals are especially at risk of overdose deaths. Recent studies show drug overdose accounted for 1 in 4 deaths among people experiencing homelessness. As drug overdose deaths continue to rise, so does the need for innovative, early intervention and harm-reducing services. Programs across the country have begun to develop strategies to reduce harm in these at-risk populations. Join us for this Providers Clinical Support System Medications for Opioid Use Disorders (PCSS-MOUD) webinar, where we explore a program that’s focused on providing life-saving medications and interventions to unhoused populations.
