Breakout Session: Opioids and the LGBTQ Community
November 15, 2018 - 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. EDT
Substance use disorders, including opioids, disproportionately affects the LGBTQ community. Recent surveys have shown that LGB men and women were significantly more likely to have misused prescription pain relievers in the last year compared to heterosexual adults and had almost three times greater risk of opioid use disorder than heterosexual adults. This session will address the prevalence of opioids in the LGBTQ community and resources available to members of this population.
