Non-Opioid Options Grant

At the beginning of 2020, CADCA recruited coalitions from across the country with expertise in healthcare collaborations and opioid prevention to participate in on-going training and focused technical assistance with the vision of increasing awareness and access to non-opioid treatments for acute pain management related to surgery and injury.

As recipients of the Non-Opioid Options Grant, we can educate our community on alternatives for Prescription opioids for pain management. This project will reduce the risk for severe substance use disorder and overdose deaths in our community. We bring awareness on how non-opioid choices can provide increased relief from pain and better patient satisfaction while avoiding life-threatening risks.

Students in our High School produced this video to educate athletes and other students.
