MetroHealth Office of Opioid Safety
The Office of Opioid Safety (OOS) offers education, tools and resources to MetroHealth providers and staff in all opioid related needs.
Additionally, the OOS has a commitment to offering community-based education and training that includes but not limited to: community organizations, government agencies, educational systems, corporations, groups, etc.
Our mission is to promote opioid safety throughout the MetroHealth system and in the greater community through education, advocacy and treatment through:
- Increased access to non -opioid pain management modalities
- Safe opioid prescribing
- Prevention of Opioid Use Disorder
- Addressing the stigma of Substance Use Disorders
- Harm Reduction
- Access to addiction treatment
People struggling with opioid addiction can learn about obtaining a naloxone kit.
Syringe-exchange programs can provide a light in the darkness for people living with opioid-use disorder.
“Prescription for Hope,” a podcast from The MetroHealth System, spends a day with the team providing this crucial street-level care.
