Georgia Systems of Care Conference: The Opioid Crisis and Latino Youth

The opioid epidemic has touched every county in the state of Georgia and every state in the United States. However, most of the attention has been focused on opioid use in White communities leaving out the effects of this epidemic in racially and ethnically diverse communities.

This workshop will address what we know about the effects of the opioid epidemic within the Latinx community. In particular, Latinx youth. How are Latinx youth being affected by this crisis? What are the trends in use, overdose and death? How do Latinx youth become exposed?, How are their families affected?

We will address the cultural and linguistic needs necessary in order to help this community and what can we do to help them.
