Opioid addiction is now a public health crisis. This panel will discuss the critical role that legal services can play in assisting people who are living with addiction or who are in recovery to achieve sobriety and other positive life outcomes, including by challenging discrimination across a range of settings. The workshop will also discuss how to establish and develop partnerships with frontline providers, local governments, and other stakeholders to help programs identify and address legal problems that both result from and contribute to a person’s substance use disorder – such as family-related issues, access to treatment, and barriers to housing and employment.
