Prevention Evidenced Based Practices (EBP’s)

Prevention activities work to educate and support individuals and communities to prevent the use and misuse of opioids and the development of opioid use disorders. Ongoing opioid use and mental disorders can make daily activities difficult and impair a person’s ability to work, interact with family, and fulfill other major life functions. This presentation will explore current, evidence-based prevention efforts with actionable interventions targeting individuals, families and communities susceptible to misusing opioids. Join us as we discuss palpable, evidence-based programming to instill resilience into the communities you serve.
