via Zoom
Presented by MSU Extension MiSUPER Educators

Opioid use disorder is a complex problem that can affect anyone, it knows no demographic boundaries, however, individuals in rural areas often face additional challenges and risk factors, such as isolation, unemployment, and poverty. Limited resources for prevention, education, treatment and recovery further compound the problem.

The overall goal of the Michigan Substance Use Prevention, Education, and Recovery (MiSUPER) project is to increase awareness of opioid misuse in rural communities regarding prevention, addiction treatment options, and recovery support so that community members and healthcare professionals can recognize signs of misuse, connect individuals to professional treatment resources, and support those in recovery. Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), MiSUPER is a two-year collaborative project between MSU Extension, MSU College of Human Medicine (MSU-CHM) and the Health Department of Northwest Michigan (HDNW).  

Presentation Objectives:

  • To define what opioids are and what opioid misuse is.
  • To provide an overview of how opioids affect the body.
  • To look at how the crisis has impacted Michigan.
  • To identify treatment and recovery options.
  • To discuss how rural communities have been impacted.
  • To learn how to support someone in recovery.

This event is free and is funded in part by SAMHSA.
