The Brandeis Opioid Resource Connector (BORC) is an online tool that assists communities in mounting a comprehensive response to the opioid crisis. It provides a curated collection of community-based programs and resources to help stakeholders choose, design, and implement essential interventions to address this public health emergency across the continuum of care — prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery.

The website is made up of four main components:

BORC has recently published an issue brief that discusses the role of social determinants of health (SDoH) in the opioid crisis and how addressing SDoH might improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities related to opioid use disorder, especially in the era of COVID-19. 

Support for the Brandeis Opioid Resource Connector was provided by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
