Overdose Prevention Project Hosts Methadone Discussion

Workshop to be held at Preble Street Resource Center

On Thursday February 5, 2009, the City of Portland’s Health & Human Services Department Public Health Division’s Overdose Prevention Project will hold its 2nd annual Advocacy Partnership Exchange (APEx) workshop at Preble Street Resource Center. These workshops provide people accessing Preble Street’s resources with the opportunity to have face-to-face interactions with service providers in a discussion-style forum.

Based on community outreach interaction, member input and Preble Street staff feedback, the selected theme for this workshop is “Q & A: Dispelling the Myths of Methadone and Medication Assisted Treatment.” Staff representatives from Merrimack River Medical Services, Discovery House and CAP Quality Care will serve as panel members and answer questions regarding addiction and opiate-replacement therapies. “We’re excited for any opportunity to increase awareness about addiction and the many treatment options that are available,” stated Portland’s Overdose Prevention Project’s Amanda Edgar.

When: February 5, 2009

9:30 AM to 11:00 AM

Where: Preble Street Resource Center

18 Portland Street, Portland
