Housing as a Social Determinant of Addiction

Street with rowhouses

On August 31, 2022, AIR will present Housing as a Social Determinant of Addiction, the fifth webinar in a series from the AIR Center for Addiction Research and Effective Solutions (AIR CARES).

The webinar will focus on gaps in funding for programs to address homelessness and housing instability, the collateral consequences of punitive housing policies for people who use drugs, and strategies to assist people experiencing homelessness.

The series, Social Determinants of Addiction: The 4Ps—People, Policy, Programs, and Practice, features experts in the addiction field and focuses on specific social determinants of health and their relationship to substance use disorder and overdose. Each webinar in the series highlights perspectives from experts in policy, practice, programs, and people to support a more holistic response to the overdose epidemic and to examine the interactions between social structures and the people they are designed to support.

Through these connections, we hope to elevate work that is driven by respect and humility, builds community capacity and sustainable relationships, empowers those whose lives are impacted by that work, improves health, and restores justice.

Join us for what we expect to be an engaging conversation.
