Boots on the Ground will, through a Black Community lens, explore the power of innovative, community-based approaches to help people with opioid use disorder. The conference will showcase community programs from across the country, each designed to counteract the stigma and racial disparities that so often keep members of communities of color from receiving equitable access to substance use disorder treatment and harm reduction and recovery services. Speakers will share the stories of their programs, highlighting factors that both enable and challenge their program successes, including funding, partners, and evaluation. Facilitated panel and breakout sessions will provide additional insights and synthesis.
We believe the stories shared and the learnings that emerge from this conference will be valuable to communities dedicated to helping their members who are living with addiction/opioid use disorder.
