Opioid Prevention & Advocacy Project
As an agent of change in the prevention and identification of Opioid Addiction and Overdose epidemic by educating and partnering with other like-minded agencies in bringing public awareness of the Opioid crisis that is besieging and sapping the vitality out of the Ogden, UT and Weber County communities.
Six open public forums on the dangers of the Opioid crisis:
·How the Opioid epidemic started,
Its impact on the community,
What constitutes opioid use,
How to spot and respond to a potential overdose,
Information on treatment facilities;
And, what ways families can provide support and encourage loved ones who are struggling with opioid addiction.
The overall purpose is to create a community event that promotes a supportive environment for families, neighbors, friends, and co-workers. The open forum will also serve as a platform where opioid survivors and their families will be encouraged to share their stories of struggles, challenges, and successes in combating the opioid epidemic.
