Opioid Use Disorder Law and Policy: Impacts on American Indians and Alaska Natives

TEC News, Training, Webinar

December 11, 2020
1 p.m. CNT

Topic:
Tribal Law & OUD

Description:
As the substance use disorder crisis continues to devastate communities across the United States, Tribal and American Indian communities are also impacted; yet insufficient attention has been paid to the law and policies perpetuating this crisis in Indian country. As sovereign nations, Tribes are uniquely situated to respond public health issues using their inherent sovereign authorities. Yet, issues related to federal Indian law and cross-jurisdictional issues between Tribes, states, and the federal government further complicate the implication of evidence-based legal interventions by Tribes or to support American Indian and Alaska Native communities. This webinar will explore Tribal, state, and federal substance use disorder law and policy and its impact in Indian country. It will focus on a variety of issues related to substance use disorder, with an emphasis on opioid use disorder.


Facilitated by the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Epidemiology Center and presented by Aila Hoss, JD
