Ingham Opioid Abuse Prevention


The Ingham Opioid Abuse Prevention Initiative "IOAPI" (formerly the Ingham Opioid Work Group) first formed in early 2015. The group includes health officials, health providers, people specializing in substance abuse treatment, law enforcement and other first responders, and members of non-profit organizations. The focus of this group is to reduce overdose fatality in the community, in addition to reducing the stigma that is associated with Substance Use.

If you or someone you know are seeking help for Substance Use Disorders, take advantage of the Resource Directory for Individuals and Families Impacted by Substance Use Disorder by clicking on the link Resource Guide.
