Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Limited literature exists regarding OT’s role in the opioid crisis. To develop and support that role, it is important to understand practitioners’ perceptions and experiences in treating the population. This research study, through qualitative content analysis, explores barriers and supports to addressing opioid prevention, use, and addiction in practice. The results provide a foundation for future research establishing OT’s role in the opioid crisis.
