The double burden: COVID-19 and opioid deaths

Before the U.S. entered the COVID-19 pandemic, it has long suffered the epidemic of opioid deaths. This webinar will address the impact of COVID-19 on individuals who misuse opioids and how the sudden change in everyday life increases their usage. It will explore how the pandemic has exacerbated mental instability and caused interruptions in potential treatment for people who misuse opioids. In addition, the webinar will present methods and resources to mitigate the risk of opioid deaths associated with vulnerable populations.
