We are pleased to invite substance, mental health service and vocational rehabilitation professionals (e.g., counselors, clinicians, directors) from across the country that provide to participate in a national study on Opioid Use Disorder Impacts on Employment Prospects for People with Disabilities from minority backgrounds (i.e., African American, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian, Alaskan Native, or Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islanders). Opioid use disorder (OUD) can involve maladaptive/misuse of prescribed opioid medications, use of diverted opioid medications, or use of illicitly obtained heroin.

This study is being conducted by The Langston University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (LU-RRTC) on Research and Capacity Building for Minority Entities. Langston University is the only historically black college or university (HBCU). The LU-RRTC is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).

The new information generated through this study would provide insights on how policy makers, educators and federal research sponsoring agencies such as the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) can better respond to the needs of people with opioid use disorder, especially people with disabilities from minority backgrounds. In addition, the study findings may be used as a foundation for developing interventions that seek to improve the experiences and outcomes of individuals with disabilities from minority backgrounds with opioid use disorder.

The information in this study will be used only for research purposes and in ways that will not reveal who you are. Study participants will not be identified in any publication from this study. The survey will take around 20 minutes to complete. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dr. Corey Moore (Principal Investigator) via email: [email protected] or Dr. Edward Manyibe (Co-PI) via email: [email protected]. If you experience technical difficulty with the survey, contact Dr. Andre Washington: [email protected] and he will be happy to assist you.
