Lenawee Opioid Action Plan Vision Statement

To live in a community where everyone can live healthy, fulfilled lives not defined by substance use through trauma-informed care, education, and treatment.

As a community, understand that substance use can affect anyone and work to remove the stigma and break down barriers to recovery.   We must work to understand the systems in place that impact one’s initial decision to use and help educate youth, parents, and community members to prevent long-term substance use problems in the future.

To live in a world where everyone is supported with a multi-sector continuum of solutions designed to reduce opioid misuse and promote healthy, fulfilled lives.
