Office-based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) programs have been shown to be an effective tool in response to the nationwide opioid epidemic. At Daily Planet Health Services in Richmond, Virginia, we work with individuals who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless, and this includes many people with opioid use disorder. Our workshop will explore the scope of the opioid problem, how we utilize our OBOT program to serve our clients, and things we have learned that work (and do not work) in serving our clients and our greater community.
