Case Study 3:  Map-based Solutions to Tackle the Opioid Crisis

The opioid crisis has presented challenges to improving minority health and eliminating health disparities.  As part of a funded SBIR Phase I from NIDA (1R43DA057708-01), S-3 developed web hosted map technologies that can identify where substance use disorder treatment is needed the most and where burden is high.


Map-based tools also have other benefits to advance public health. This includes map tools we have developed to track compliance of tobacco and cannabis sellers, a risk map identifying communities that have a higher burden of substance use and other risks (e.g., suicide, crime, etc.), and building predictive models to anticipate where these resources are needed to address them.
