Addressing the Opioid Crisis through Social Determinants of Health: What Are Communities Doing?

This issue brief discusses the role of social determinants of health (SDoH) in the opioid crisis and how addressing SDoH might improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities related to OUD, especially in the era of COVID-19. We focus on three central domains of SDoH: employment, housing, and education. Promising program models implemented by communities addressing these domains are highlighted.
