WVU Health Sciences launches site dedicated to addiction efforts

The drug overdose epidemic is affecting our families, our communities and our future, and West Virginia is ground zero for this national emergency. But hope remains.

West Virginia University is uniquely positioned to bring together academic and clinical experts, laboratory scientists, patient advocates, policymakers and the private sector to lead the United States out of this crisis.

WVU Health Sciences has launched a website dedicated to information about the opioid epidemic and the University’s vision for a path forward.

Located at health.wvu.edu/addiction, the website will serve as a hub for addiction-related information, research and resources, and it is a work-in-progress and represents ongoing efforts.

If you need help with a substance use disorder, visit the Resources page for a list of local, state and national support services.
