  • Reduce health inequities related to overdose by closing gaps in access to care and services
  • Integrate harm reduction strategies and principles
  • Improve linkage to and re-engagement and retention in services, care, treatment, and recovery, focused on opioid use disorder (OUD) and stimulant use disorder (StUD)

  • Track linkage to and retention in care

  • Persons recently released from incarceration
  • People experiencing homelessness
  • Anyone who has experienced a non-fatal overdose
  • Non-English speaking populations
  • Rural communities
  • Racial/ethnic minority groups
  • Sexual and gender minority groups
  • People experiencing certain social determinants of health such as reduced economic stability; limited educational attainment; limited healthcare access, including those who have been historically underserved or are uninsured; limited access to substance use treatment; limited health literacy; and geographically underserved areas
  • People experiencing certain social or physical health conditions or experiences such as homelessness, a mental health condition, chronic pain, a disability, adverse childhood experiences, a history of suicidal ideation or suicide attempt, and history of substance use disorders and/or overdose
