Faith-Based Support Specialist Training

Although faith leaders see the effects of opioid use disorder and other forms of substance use disorder in their congregations, many have no training on how to respond. This project will train 240 faith-based leaders across Alabama to serve as faith-based support specialists. The two-day trainings, which will cover the science of addiction, treatment, and recovery, aims to reduce stigma and increase awareness of treatment and recovery resources in local communities.
