NAADAC Featured in a USA Today "Opioid Awareness" Campaign
NAADAC partnered with Mediaplanet for its recent major national Opioid Awareness media campaign distributed through USA Today. The goal of the Opioid Awareness campaign is to shed light on opioid use and highlight resources for those directly affected by the opioid epidemic and their loved ones regarding prevention, pain management, treatment and recovery from opioid misuse.
Recipients will train and provide resources to first responders and members of other key community sectors at the state, tribal, and local governmental levels on carrying and administering a drug or device approved or cleared under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose. Recipients will also establish processes; protocols; mechanisms for referral to appropriate treatment and recovery communities; and safety around fentanyl, carfentanil, and other dangerous licit and illicit drugs.
SAMHSA plans to issue 45 grants of up to $800,000 per year for up to 4 years.
