The Indian Health Services (IHS) National Committee on Heroin, Opioids, and Pain Efforts (HOPE) is pleased to release its October 2019 newsletter to share important updates surrounding the IHS response to the opioid and heroin epidemic.  The goal of the newsletter is to briefly highlight resources and share additional information with our healthcare workforce, our employees, and our tribal stakeholders. 

In this issue you will find information on increasing access to naloxone, integrated pain management care: a rehab specialist perspective, and opioid stewardship.  


Please submit any future content recommendations to LCDR Kristin Allmaras, HOPE Committee Secretary.  Please share this important information broadly.
