Strategies to Address the Intersection of the Opioid Crisis and Homelessness
The NH Coalition to End Homelessness will host a half-day online training on Strategies to Address the Intersection of the Opioid Crisis and Homelessness presented by Stephanie Savard, LICSW & Meghan Shea.
With the opioid crisis directly impacting all populations across New Hampshire, it is not surprising that the most vulnerable population, those who are experiencing homelessness, are hardest hit. Whether a provider is in a treatment setting or working in a social service agency, all stakeholders need to increase their understanding of the impact of OUD and opioid misuse on the homeless population. This workshop will provide an understanding of the prevalence of this issue, challenges to providing services to those with OUD and homelessness in diverse settings and provide evidenced based solutions to develop and implement interventions and response strategies.
