The Washtenaw Health Initiative Opioid Project

. November 1, 2016.

Like much of the country, Washtenaw County is experiencing a massive uptick in prescription opioid-related deaths — a 1525 percent increase since the year 2000. In response, members of the community have banded together to form the Washtenaw Health Initiative Opioid Project. To help raise awareness of this growing health crisis, the AADL and the U-M Depression Center will hold a community forum that will both educate the public, explain the role of the project and explain how to be proactive in both the community and at home.
