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.
