The Florida AHEC Network is working to reduce the statewide morbidity and mortality associated with opioid use and addiction through interventions designed to prevent opioid use and strengthen the capacity of Florida’s healthcare system for early detection and appropriate treatment for those at risk and those with Opioid Use Disorders or those who misuse opioids.

We are working collaboratively across the state to:

  • Provide health professional training opportunities in rural and high impact areas in all 67 Florida counties

  • Provide training opportunities for medical residency programs and health professions student programs in a wide range of disciplines throughout the state

  • Identify and adopt evidenced-based capacity building models of practice for opioid use prevention and early intervention

  • Develop information campaigns locally and via social media within all 67 counties

  • Provide educational materials for health professionals and community members to organizations across the state of Florida
