The U.S. is now facing two intersecting health crises, the ongoing opioid overdose epidemic and the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, we now live in a world where science can be quickly mobilized to find solutions to mitigate the worst effects. NIDA has swiftly responded to the COVID-19 crisis by supporting research in areas of basic science, prevention, treatment, epidemiology, and implementation, particularly at the intersection with substance use disorders. This presentation will provide an update on NIDA science underway to address the opioid crisis during the COVID pandemic and the implications for practice and policy.
- Participants will examine the impact of the COVID pandemic on preventing and treating substance use disorders.
- Participants will learn about research underway by NIDA to lessen the impact of these colliding public health problems.
- Participants will acquire an understanding of how science can inform policy and practice related to addressing substance use disorder.
