Webinar Description: Between 2018 and 2019, the rate of opioid-related deaths among African Americans increased by 38%. Despite these rising rates of drug overdoses in African American communities, attention to the drug overdose crisis and opioid epidemic has focused primarily on White suburban and rural communities. This webinar will address the unique challenges and social determinants that hinder access to quality care for many African Americans. Additionally, we will review opioid use disorder treatment and harm reduction options, as well as explore the use of peer support services to engage African Americans in appropriate services.
- Identify existing disparities in access to quality substance use treatment and recovery services for African Americans
- Discuss the contextual issues and treatment barriers that impact rates of opioid use disorder (OUD) and opioid overdoses in African American populations
- Explore the use of specific outreach strategies and recovery supports to increase access and engagement in care for African Americans
- Examine the use of effective harm reduction strategies within African American communities
