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