Prescription Drug/Opioid Overdose Related Deaths (PDO) Grant Program

About the PDO Grant Program

Funding Opportunities

Our Prevention Network team is administering a Request For Proposals (RFP) sourced from a discretionary grant, titled Prevent Prescription/Opioid Overdose-Related Deaths, that Michigan was awarded from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration/Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (SAMHSA/CSAP). This funding will focus on how the MI-PDO Project will enhance current efforts by concentrating innovative strategies to address the number of prescription drug/opioid overdose-related deaths and adverse events among individuals 18 years of age and older in communities of high need, specifically, Calhoun, Genesee, and Wayne counties. The Prescription Drug/Opioid Overdose Project will identify trends to assist government agencies, lawmakers and local community leaders to tailor laws, target resources and design innovative programs to best address the opioid epidemic in Michigan.

The Michigan Project to Prevent Prescription Drug/Opioid Overdose-Related Deaths (MI-PDO) aims to reduce prescription drug/opioid overdose-related deaths and adverse events among residents 18+ in Calhoun, Genesee, and Wayne counties. Project goals include increasing the capacity of high-need communities to address the project’s purpose, reducing access to opioids through the implementation of safe prescribing, and enhancing opioid education and naloxone distribution.

Prevention Network is working with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Office of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (MDHHS OROSC) and Wayne State University School of Social Work to address opioid overdose prevention efforts in the identified communities of high need, as well as data collection, performance measurement, and quality improvement.
