The Michigan Overdose Prevention Coalition supports overdose prevention efforts in Michigan, including legislative advocacy to expand access to naloxone and SSPs. Coalition members have lived experience related to substance use and overdose—both personal and professional—via the healthcare system, SSPs, treatment programs, county associations, law enforcement, familial relationships, sex work, and harm reduction organizations.
The Michigan Overdose Prevention Coalition will equip its members to educate decision makers, advocate for public policy change, and improve service delivery systems for people who use drugs.
Substance use and overdose are understood as public health issues. Public policy, health systems, and social services are healing focused and compassionate to people who use drugs.
