Opioid Treatment Program Directory
Find opioid treatment programs in your state.
Several million Americans currently use opioids either on their own or under a doctor’s care. Increasingly, we live under threat of natural disasters, emergencies, and even terrorist attacks which can greatly impact those requiring regular medications or living with chemical dependencies. These vulnerabilities can be particularly severe among persons who use heroin or prescription opioids but are not under a doctor’s supervision, especially if they are dependent on these drugs. In the aftermath of disasters like Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, many people experienced radically changed drug markets in which it was difficult if not impossible to locate drugs. Service agencies, such as syringe exchange programs, were closed in many instances, and drug treatment centers offering methadone, buprenorphine, and other replacement medications were also disrupted or operating at reduced capacity. In these situations, it can be particularly hard to keep safe from infection (such as HIV or HCV) and overdose. This site offers basic guidelines, resources and suggestions to people who use opioids to help them stay safe—keep everyone alive and healthy even during times of great hardship and uncertainty.
