COVID-19 and People Who Use Drugs or Have Substance Use Disorder

Note: This page is designed for people who use drugs or have substance use disorder; their friends, family, and loved ones; and the general public.

Having a substance use disorder can make you more likely to get severely ill from COVID-19.  People who use drugs may also have underlying medical conditions that put them at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19, and they may have concerns and questions related to their risk.
