The Addiction Policy Forum released prevention resources translated into 12 languages


The Addiction Policy Forum released prevention resources translated into 12 languages to help improve language access to information on the prevention of substance use disorders. The project was supported by the AmerisourceBergen Foundation, the Ethnic Communities Opioids Response Network – Missouri (ECORN-MO), the Opioid Response Network (ORN) and the Mid-America Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) to provide open-source, science-backed prevention materials for communities and families with limited English proficiency.


The need for such resources has become more pressing in light of recent reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which show predicted overdose deaths reaching a devastating new 12-month record, with nearly 110,000 American lives lost from December 2021 to December 2022. Prevention initiatives are critical in the face of a worsening epidemic.
