Supporting Opioid Use Disorder Treatment to Recovery through Piloting an Intervention Addressing Intimate Partner Violence and Substance Use Coercion

Many women with a substance use disorder say they’ve experienced intimate partner violence (IPV) and/or been coerced into using substances by their partners — a little-known problem and a barrier to treatment and recovery. In this project, staff at the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Mental Health will tailor their Substance Use Coercion Toolkit, the only one of its kind, to OUD treatment and recovery settings, creating tools clinicians and other staff can use to identify and respond to patients who are experiencing substance-use coercion. The grantees will pilot the toolkit, elicit feedback from users, and then create an implementation package that can be easily adopted in a range of clinical settings.
