Data indicates that nearly 75% of the nation’s 91,799 drug overdose deaths involved synthetic opioids, a shift that is consistent with trends indicating a worsening drug overdose epidemic. As the epidemic evolves, states have sought more effective solutions to reduce and treat opioid use disorders (OUD) and prevent overdose.
Integrated care models offer an effective solution; a research-based approach to manage chronic conditions like OUD, enhancing access to care and ensuring clients receive individualized services. OUD is a chronic relapsing condition that necessitates integrated forms of health and social service provisions to improve continuity of care.
