Opioid use disorder is a complex problem that can affect anyone. It knows no demographic boundaries. However, individuals in rural areas often face additional challenges and risk factors, such as isolation, unemployment, and poverty. Limited resources for prevention, education, treatment and recovery further compound the problem. 

Webinar Presentation Objectives:

  • To define opioids and opioid misuse.
  • To provide an overview of how opioids affect the body.
  • To look at how the opioid crisis has impacted Michigan.
  • To identify treatment and recovery options.
  • To discuss how rural communities have been impacted by the opioid crisis.
  • To learn how to support someone in recovery.

Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), MiSUPER is a two-year collaborative project between MSU Extension, MSU College of Human Medicine (MSU-CHM) and the Health Department of Northwest Michigan (HDNW).  The overall goal of the MiSUPER project is to increase awareness of opioid misuse in rural communities regarding prevention, addiction treatment options, and recovery support so that community members and healthcare professionals can recognize signs of misuse, suggest options for professional treatments and support those in recovery.
