Started in 2015 by a group of concerned citizens, the Fairbanks Opioid Work Group provides a forum to discuss the opioid epidemic in Fairbanks and its surrounding areas; focused on education, prevention, intervention, recovery & program funding.
- Do you want to learn more about prescription opioid misuse and heroin use in our community?
- Are you a person in long term recovery or affected by a family member or friend's addiction to opioids?
- Do you work with people struggling with opioid use disorder?
