COMMUNITY MEMBERS

In Santa Cruz County, enough opioid medications are prescribed for every man, woman, and child to medicate themselves around the clock for six weeks of each year. As a coalition of interdisciplinary organizations, SafeRx has been working in collaboration with doctors, pharmacists, and other community members to promote prevention of unsafe prescribing and substance use practices. 


See this link for our padlet with resources for youth and families, healthcare providers, grieving loved ones, and to learn information about Medication for Addiction Treatment (MAT), and resources for Spanish speakers. All resources are also available in Spanish.

The "Let's Talk" booklet is a collaborative effort between organizations in Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito Counties. The booklets were adapted from Overdose Free Marin's booklets of the same name, and they were distributed in Fall 2022 to provide a resource for Tri-County families about adolescent mental health and substance use.

El folleto "Hablemos" es un esfuerzo de colaboración entre organizaciones en los Condados de Santa Cruz, Monterey, y San Benito. Los folletos se adaptaron de los folletos del mismo nombre de Overdose Free Marin, y se distribuyeron en el otoño de 2022 para compartir un recurso para familias en la Costa Central (Región de Tres Condados) sobre la salud mental y uso de sustancias de los adolescentes.
