SAMHSA Webinar: Addressing our Drug Overdose Deaths: Combined Strategies to Optimize Health, Wellness and Recovery through a Culturally Responsive System of Care

When: November 16, 2022, from 11:00-12:30 PST

Description: Drug overdose deaths have been rising precipitously over the past few years, with particularly devastating results among African Americans, Latinx people, and American Indians and Alaska Natives. One of the populations most affected by this crisis is people experiencing homelessness. This webinar will offer important information about how communities can reduce overdose deaths among those experiencing homelessness by utilizing combined interventions of harm reduction, supportive housing, SUD treatment and recovery support that are integrated and culturally responsive. Recommendations for system- and provider-level stakeholders to build an integrated, best practice continuum of care will be offered.
