VIP’s CEO Debbian Fletcher-Blake joins the Rockfeller Institute’s webinar on The Opioid Crisis During COVID-19 – December 10, 2020 at 1:30pm

Epidemic in a Pandemic:
The Opioid Crisis During COVID-19

After more than a decade of increases, overdose deaths finally saw a decline in 2018 (the most recent year for which there is official data). Yet, this positive trend may have come to an abrupt end in early 2020 as the United States faced COVID-19. Anecdotal evidence from the frontlines of the pandemic suggest communities across the US may be experiencing a spike in overdose deaths as economic uncertainty continues and social distancing affects patients’ access to treatment and support services.

On December 10th at 1:30 p.m., join us for this webinar where experts on substance-use disorder services, including VIP’s CEO Debbian Fletcher-Blake, will provide insight on what is happening during the pandemic, the challenges people with substance-use disorders face, and what we can do to improve results.
