The Use of Peer Recovery Coaches to Combat Barriers to Opioid Use Disorder Treatment in Indiana
Indiana University-Purdue University Inidanapolis' Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health published this brief in order to illustrate a PRC's essential role in combatting the opioid epidemic in Indiana. Key points include the expectation that expanded use of PRC's will result in higher treatment access and engagement, and, thus, lower rates of opioid-related mortality. Additionally, several barriers need to be addressed before successful integration of PRC's into a work setting can be achieved.
- Evidence Based Practice
- Integration of Peer Services
