Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), this training and technical assistance program aims to address the disproportionate impact of the opioid epidemic on rural areas of Washington state.
The multidisciplinary team led by Dr. Michael McDonell (Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine) and Dr. Elizabeth Weybright (College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences) will leverage WSU's Extension system to provide training to rural communities to help them prevent and treat opioid addiction.
With the substantial investment in the Center for Rural Opioid Prevention, Treatment and Recovery, leaders hope to provide opioid use treatment assistance to at least 500 providers and citizens living in rural Washington.
