Caring for Women with Opioid Use Disorder: A Toolkit for Organization Leaders and Providers   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the Introduction: "Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a public health crisis affecting women, men, children, and society. Women with OUD have unique care needs and require a broad range of medical, behavioral health, and social services to meet these needs. Care coordination is important to manage the array of services that might be delivered to women in different settings. Without care coordination, women with OUD might struggle to access the services they need to get treatment and maintain recovery. This toolkit is a guide to help you and other health care and social service organization leaders and providers improve care coordination for women with OUD in HRSA [Health Resources and Services Administration]-supported programs. The information in this toolkit may also apply to other settings of care."
