We will hold our next volunteer training on August 30 in center city. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
This is open to all interested in all aspects of SAFE. Hope you can make it!
Project SAFE encourages community members and allies to take action:
The 2014 National Drug Control Strategy represents a 21st century approach to drug policy. It outlines innovative policies and programs and recognizes that substance use is not just a criminal justice issue, but also a major public health concern. NASTAD commends the Administration for addressing HIV, hepatitis C, overdose and syringe services programs as a part of the National Drug Control Strategy.
-Administration commitment to a balanced public health and public safety approach to drug policy, based on science, not ideology
-Educating the public about overdose risks and interventions
-Increasing access to naloxone
-Working with states to promote Good Samaritan laws
-Inform public health systems on implementation of needle exchange programs
-Integrate and coordinate substance use disorder services under the Affordable Care Act
-Equip health care providers and first responders to recognize and manage overdoses
-Integrate substance use treatment and HIV prevention and care, including in the criminal justice system
-Expand internationally a comprehensive package of health interventions for injection drug users
-Enhanced focus on community-based overdose prevention and naloxone distribution– reduce drug related deaths 15 percent by 2015
-Prevention, treatment and recovery support services should be integrated into health care systems
Is your organization ready to embrace evidence-based practices like harm reduction, syringe access and over-dose prevention? Project SAFE is happy to provide trainings to anyone serving substance users and their loved ones!
Hope to hear from you!
