NNED Virtual Roundtable: The Impact of Opioid Addiction in Diverse Communities

On May 9, 2018, on behalf of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the NNED convened a Virtual Roundtable: Voices from the Field on the Impact of Opioid Addiction in Diverse Communities.  In this Roundtable, panelists and participants were invited to discuss opioid addiction and treatment in communities of colors and strategies for community-based organizations to engage in cross-systems work.

In addition to raising awareness and increasing knowledge of participants around opioid addiction and treatment, the Roundtable dialogue aimed to draw attention to cultural considerations, persistent disparities, and the cultural divide that play a role in the opioid crisis.
