Attention Subscribers:

We are excited to share the announcement of the new Opioid Research Institute. Serving as an expansion of the Opioid Solutions network, the Institute will bolster research collaborations and strengthen community engagement to address the national opioid overdose crisis. As such, this newsletter will be transferred to the Institute and will undergo a revamp to match the new Institute branding. We appreciate your patience as this process moves forward, your support of the newsletter and its content, and your collaboration in the critical efforts of opioid related research. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the Institute at
