Scaling up a Toolkit to Improve Retention and Adherence in Medications for Opioid Use Disorder Treatment

Housing Works is helping to remove barriers to treatment and improve retention rates for patients living at or beneath the poverty line in New York City. Many of its clients are homeless or at risk for homelessness. The organization will be leveraging social networking strategies to recruit and motivate clients and tapping peer support workers and a collaborative care model to engage them.

In partnership with and additional funding provided by The New York Community Trust.
