PreventEd Speaker Series – Solutions, Not Stigma: Wraparound Care for Opioid Use Disorder in Franklin County

Time

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In this one-hour presentation, Terisha Friedmann, PreventEd’s Certified Peer Specialist Supervisor, will discuss the current implementation of this project, including how PreventEd’s Certified Peer Specialists are successfully connecting clients with Medication-Assisted Treatment providers like ARCA, Preferred Family Health, and Freedom Center.

Data from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services ranks Franklin County as number 3 of the 114 Missouri counties in terms of deaths by opioid overdose. Fortunately, PreventEd has received a 5-year SAMHSA grant to provide Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Prescription Drug and Opioid Addiction. This program will utilize Certified Peer Specialists and partnerships with local treatment agencies to substantially increase accessibility to vital treatment services in Franklin County.
