The following toolkit was developed in partnership by the Mid-America Addiction
Technology Transfer Center, the Institute for Human Development, and the
Opioid Response Network, all housed at the University of Missouri – Kansas
This toolkit is the result of a regional roundtable discussion that brought together
professionals from the substance use disorder (SUD) services field and the
intellectual/developmental disabilities services field. Through the roundtable
professionals shared ideas and identified gaps in communication and services
for people living with both a substance use disorder and an intellectual and
developmental disability. We hope this toolkit provides resources and tools to
serve individuals living at this intersection in your community.
