On January 29, 2019, at 2 p.m. e.t., the Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center will present an online Expert Q&A discussion with Deepa Patel, CSTOP, LCSW, and Karen Romero on “Housing, Addiction, and Human Trafficking.”

Finding adequate and appropriate emergency, transitional, and long-term housing for victims of human trafficking is often the biggest service-related challenge that service providers face. In order to meet the diverse needs of trafficking victims, service providers should explore a variety of options, considering specific safety and level of care needs of each victim. This session will discuss the intersection between housing, substance use, and addiction, and will explore the impact of the opioid crisis on the already limited appropriate and available housing supply for victims of trafficking.

Note: This session will be recorded and posted on the Past Sessions tab when available.
