Increasing Access to Evidence-Based Treatments for Racial and Ethnic Minoritized People with Behavioural Health Disorders

Treatment options are available for people with substance use disorders, however, there remains a treatment gap for racial and ethnic minoritized communities and many other marginalized identities as a result of discrimination. The current drug overdose epidemic and differential treatment therein exemplify the severity of the existing disparity in addiction treatment due to inequities in the social determinants of health and other discriminatory practices, such as institutionalized racism, sexism, and homophobia.

Community-engaged research practices provide a pathway to creating and promoting sustainable solutions to address and eliminate the inequity in addiction treatment. Here, we define community-engaged research as working collaboratively with key stakeholders, including community-based organizations, those directly affected by the research, health systems, academia, and other relevant groups.

This Article Collection aims to solicit original research articles that employ a community-engaged approach that promotes health equity in addiction and addresses the needs of racial and ethnic minoritized communities that are experiencing vulnerabilities in the social determinants of health due to historical and present discrimination. We encourage submissions that focus on intersecting identities (e.g., gender identity, sexual identity, geographic location, class, etc.).

In addition to original research, we will also be accepting review articles and editorials. We are interested in review articles that provide context for understanding the landscape and the importance of research undertakings in this area. Editorials that provide commentary on influential articles in this area that promote further discussion and reflection will also be considered.

Subtopics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Psychostimulants
  • Opioid use disorder
  • Intersecting identities
  • Non-pharmacologic evidence-based interventions
  • Co-occurring disorders

When submitting your article, please select the section 'Addiction', and the Article Collection, 'Increasing Access to Evidence-Based Treatments for Racial and Ethnic Minoritized People with Behavioural Health Disorders' from the drop-down menu on the submission system.
