Treatment While Unhoused: Providing MOUD to Populations Experiencing Homelessness

Sponsor: Providers Clinical Support System

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 111,000 people died from a drug overdose in the 12-month period ending last September. Unhoused individuals are especially at risk of overdose deaths. Recent studies show that of people experiencing homelessness, drug-overdose accounted for 1 in 4 deaths. As drug-related overdose deaths continue to rise, the need for innovative, early intervention and harm-reducing services are especially relevant. Programs across the country have begun to develop strategies to reduce harm in these at-risk populations. Join on May 1st from 3-4pm ET, for our PCSS-MOUD Webinar: Treatment While Unhoused: Providing MOUD to Populations Experiencing Homelessness, as we explore a program that is focused on providing life-saving medications and interventions to unhoused populations. Learning Objectives: -Identify the barriers prevalent in conventional opioid use disorder treatment. -Summarize a novel model of MOUD care delivery. -Define the role of Integrated Care in the Housing First model. -Identify concrete strategies for developing an integrated approach to health for people with complex care needs.
