With support from the Chicago Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the landscape analysis project aimed to identify barriers to care for people living with opioid use disorder (OUD) and individuals at risk of an opioid-involved overdose residing in Chicago community areas experiencing disproportionate overdose rates. The project included conducting key informant interviews with local health care and service providers as well as people with lived experience. Utilizing both quantitative data provided by city and state sources and the qualitative data from stakeholder interviews, several areas of need were identified.
