Many agencies and organizations are struggling to engage members of affected communities with opioid prevention, recovery and treatment messaging, due to stigma related to addiction, ineffective outreach strategies, low levels of trust in government institutions and other challenges. Without open and honest dialogue, residents will continue to be less than optimally aware of local recovery and treatment services and other overdose prevention resources.
MEE has services that can help agencies and organizations in any size community to enhance their outreach, engagement and prevention efforts, particularly with low-income and hard-to-reach audiences.

It also includes access to message/materials templates MEE has developed to jump start your creative processes.
