Opioid Use Disorder and Social Determinants of Health (On-Demand)

Rachel Talley, MD, and Jessica Isom, MD 


Target Audience: 

This activity is designed for interprofessional teams, family/patients, nurses, physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and students/educators.

Webinar Description: The opioid crisis continues to have a devastating impact on families and communities across the United States. Individuals from marginalized communities, including Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and individuals who are uninsured or have lower incomes, with opioid use disorders (OUD) often experience challenges accessing and sustaining treatment services. Many of these challenges stem from unaddressed social determinants of health factors (housing, education, geography etc.) as well as systemic inequities across all care settings. Lack of attention to these factors can lead to inadequate care for OUD and inadequate support for long-term recovery. 

Educational Objectives:

  • Examine how social determinants of health may impact initiation of and ongoing substance use
  • Discuss factors that facilitate and hinder engagement in long-term treatment and recovery for BIPOC individuals
  • Identify strategies for organizations to assess and address opioid use among BIPOC individuals through addressing social determinants of health
