New Course! Xylazine and Opioid Use: An Update

The urgency of the opioid crisis that began in 2019 has not abated and fentanyl continues to fuel the overdose rates. More recently, an emerging trend has been identified. Yet another dangerous substance called Xylazine has been found more frequently in various illicit substances and is worsening outcomes for people who use opioids.   

This webinar is intended to provide the latest information available on Xylazine, including associated effects on the body and long-term impacts on opioid users, and review  current organizational strategies to help prevent exacerbated and related harm.
