Opioid overdoses claim the lives of six people a day in Massachusetts. Proactively addressing the epidemic via resilience initiatives is a step towards curtailing abuse and deaths.

This project aims to expand and scale evidence-based efforts to deploy a strategy against opioids, substance abuse, and rising overdose rates. Through a community-based prevention and intervention approach, enabled by investigators’ strong connections with public-health practitioners and community engagement centers, the project’s objective is to prioritize prevention, reduce risk factors, and promote resilient approaches for impacted groups.
