Emerging Issues Around COVID-19 and Social Determinants of Health for the Substance Use Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Workforces.


The Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network, and the Prevention Technology Transfer Center (PTTC) Networkfacilitated a national online discussion and resource sharing opportunity in April and May 2020 for the substance use (SU) prevention, treatment, and recovery workforces focused on emerging issues around social determinants of health (SDH) and COVID-19.

The goal of the series is to engage diverse community voices and create space and structure to hear from these communities about the following issues:

  • How has COVID-19 further highlighted racial and ethnic disparities?
  • What is the impact on the communities and those with substance use disorder?
  • What is the impact on the SU prevention, treatment and recovery workforces?
  • What strategies and resources are needed to mitigate these impacts?

You can find recordings, slides and thematic reports from the sessions and discussions here.
