Ingham Opioid Abuse Prevention Initiative


The Ingham Opioid Abuse Prevention Initiative "IOAPI" (formerly the Ingham Opioid Work Group) first formed in early 2015. The group includes health officials, health providers, people specializing in substance abuse treatment, law enforcement and other first responders, and members of non-profit organizations. The focus of this group is to reduce overdose fatality in the community, in addition to reducing the stigma that is associated with Substance Use.

Mission Statement: The Ingham Opioid Abuse Prevention Initiative is an action-oriented, community collaborative established to develop and implement strategies that prevent and reduce opioid addiction in Ingham County.

Vision Statement: To reduce overdose fatality in the community, in addition to reducing the stigma that is associated with Substance Use and increasing the accessibility to resources and care for those in need.

Commitment Statement: In order to build a reliable, accessible, seamless structure for Substance Use Disorder prevention and services in our community that improves and saves lives, we are committed to unifying our efforts, removing barriers, trusting our partners, sharing information and engaging in work that enhances and compliments the work of members and partners.
