Date/Time: 02/25/2021 at 10:00 am - 11:30 am
by the Network for Public Health Law
(from event page) The opioid overdose epidemic remains one of the most urgent public health issues in the United States today, killing 50,000 people every year and contributing to a variety of other health complications. Despite the proven effectiveness of utilizing opioid agonist treatment (OAT) for those experiencing an opioid use disorder, a multitude of structural and policy barriers prevent them from accessing treatment. Attend this webinar to learn about an innovative, multi-sector approach to identifying and removing barriers to OAT in eight sectors: health care, the criminal legal system, family law, housing, zoning, transportation, education and youth, and employment—as outlined in the newly released paper, A Cross Sector Approach to Removing Legal and Policy Barriers to Opioid Agonist Treatment.
