Mile High Magazine 04/05/2020 JP Opioid Interaction Awareness Alliance

Guest:  Suzi Stolte Director of Marketing and Communications JP Opioid Interaction Awareness Alliance is an all-volunteer organization and their goal is to eliminate the deaths that are caused by opioids.  543 people passed away in Colorado in 2018 from opioids.  We talked about the interactions with Opioids and Benzodiazepine.  COVID-19 is still in the early phases to see how much of an impact it has had on the use of Opioids and Benzodiazepine.  There is a concern that the COVID-19 stay at home isolation can cause the rate of deaths of Opioids and Benzodiazepine to increase.  JP Opioid Interaction Awareness Alliance educates the public about sage use, storage and safe disposal.  They also do community collaboration and public awareness.            www.jpopioidalliance.org
