The Regrounding Our Response initiative launched in the Summer of 2019 with a series of intensive training events and regional summits that brought together community members, public health professionals, service providers, law enforcement and faith communities. Each event focused on a public health concept crucial to reducing stigma and evidence-based approaches to the opioid overdose crisis.
The Center for Harm Reduction Services now supports a multi-disciplinary network of Master Presenters across the state who completed training in one of five core concepts:
- Stages of Change
- Adverse Childhood Experiences
- Social Determinants of Health
- MAT Overdose Prevention
- Drug User Health Framework
The training network is committed to raising awareness about public health approaches to the overdose crisis by presenting on these core concepts in Maryland.
