OPIOIDD

Opioid-Use Populations with Integration, Outreach, Informatics, and Drug Discovery (OPIOIDD) objective is to enhance and expand UNM HSC services to catalyze opioid-related CTR in New Mexico.

OPIOIDD

Implements novel strategies that address

a) the burden of opioid use disorder (OUD) in minority and rural populations;

b) non-opioid therapeutic development;

c) effective recruitment approaches; and

d) platforms for accelerated research and service delivery to mitigate the opioid crisis.

OPIOIDD’s objective is to enhance and expand UNM HSC services to catalyze opioid-related CTR in New Mexico, a state which is disproportionately impacted by the opioid-crisis.

The rationale is the urgent need to prevent and reduce unnecessary long-term use of opioid drugs at high doses, as well as the devastating impacts of opioid use. OPIOIDD will support K scholars and the spectrum of translational scientists. We will also work with CTSA network and other programs such as Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL).
