ABSTRACT

Opportunities to Improve Opioid Use Disorder and Infectious Disease Services: Integrating Responses to a Dual Epidemic   [open html - 0B]

From the Summary: "There are opportunities to improve the public's health by integrating treatment of opioid use disorder in clinics that treat infectious disease, focusing on screening and treating infectious diseases in substance use disorder care settings, removing policy barriers to treatment, better integrating care at all points a patient interacts with the health system, and recognizing that preventing and treating opioid use disorder improves prevention and treatment outcomes for infectious disease. This represents a key strategy to ending this dual epidemic."
