Challenging Narratives: Understanding Alcohol Use from an Equity Lens

Conventional narratives of the “opioid crisis” or “opioid epidemic” have often ignored the intimate connections between opioid use and alcohol use.

This three-hour training will explore the definition and impacts of alcohol use, recognizing the spectrum of use from abstinence to addiction. Specifically, we will examine the social determinants of alcohol use and seek to understand and challenge inequities (e.g. racial, gender-based, etc.) in treatment and recovery.
