Opioid Misuse Resource & Needs Assessment
The Substance Use Disorder Intervention Program, in consultation with the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, recently published the Opioid Misuse Resource & Needs Assessment. The assessment was designed to:
- characterize impacts on health and behavioral health providers, first responders, and other services
- identify the strengths of the service delivery system in response to the opioid epidemic
- identify unmet needs or barriers to accessing available resources for individuals who misuse opioids
This eight-week program provides youth access to coding workshops, job training, skill building and hardware.
Scholarships can be used for any post-secondary education program that encourages recipients to continue their education.
The workshop will take place on Monday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. – noon and 5 – 7 p.m. at the Lexington Public Library Tates Creek Branch.
