Fighting the good fight against the opioid epidemic


Pittsburgh is the epicenter of the opioid epidemic. There are 2.1 million Americans suffering from opioid use disorder (OUD), and over 3,500 Pennsylvanians died of an overdose in 2015 alone.

At PA Health & Wellness, we’re committed to stopping the opioid epidemic in its tracks and uplifting communities. That’s why we’re working with our neighbors to offer educational sessions and increase awareness.

Programs like OpiEnd increase awareness among middle school students. We also provide free workshops for medical professionals to qualify them to prescribe buprenorphine, a powerful at-home therapy to treat OUD.

Learn more about our workshops here.
