Lowering Barriers, Saving Lives, Reclaiming Health: Integrating Medications for Opioid Use Disorder

Thomas Jefferson University’s low barrier medications for opioid use disorder program integrates primary and behavioral health care services, making it easier for the homeless and other marginalized populations to access treatment. In partnership with Project HOME and Pathways to Housing PA, it plans to expand access to the model, study its effectiveness, and offer learning opportunities for resident physicians, medical students, and physician assistant students.
