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 Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington).
The multidisciplinary team led by Dr. Michael McDonell (Washington State University Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine), Dr. Elizabeth Weybright (Washington State University College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences) and Dr. Allison Myers (Oregon State University Center for Health Innovation) will leverage WSU & OSU's Extension systems 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 Region 10 areas.
