Recovery Science and Harm Reduction Reading Group (New England Region 1) – May 2024

The New England ATTC in partnership with RICARES is providing a basic/universal TA session titled “The State of the Research on Opioid Outcomes Among Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Other Sexuality- and Gender-Diverse Populations: A Scoping Review” on 5/16/24 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. Not much research has been published about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other populations within the LGBTQ umbrella (LGBTQ+) impacted by opioid use disorder (OUD) and overdose. In this paper, the authors summarized current publications in this topic area and looked for gaps and potential areas of future research. The authors concluded that more research is needed to understand how the opioid epidemic affects LGBTQ+ people, especially gender diverse individuals. Also, more research needs to be done so that harm reductionists and recovery scientists can understand how race, ethnicity, and age connect and intersect in promoting opioid disparities (worse health outcomes) for LGBTQ+ people. This kind of research could help create affirming OUD treatment and other services for LGBTQ+ people. Register now!
