Addiction continues to exact a heavy toll on those struggling with it, as well as their families. While there has been a proliferation of addiction-related resources, patients and families may have difficulty finding credible and accurate information regarding effective treatment, support, and clinical knowledge of this disease. The goal of the Addiction Awareness and Education Partnership is to advance awareness of credible health information resources by providing comprehensive information and support to families whose loved one has a substance use disorder SUD. In collaboration with the Overdose Prevention Fund and the National Library of Medicine NLM, AAEP will engage with families attending Learn to Cope meetings across Massachusetts by educating them on how to utilize NLM resources as a streamlined way to access trustworthy SUD treatment services and peer-reviewed information.
