Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care to Host Opioid Community Events

Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care and Valley of the Sun United Way have organized three community events throughout the month of April focused on preventing opioid addiction. These events will serve as open forums where community members can ask questions, express their concerns and get connected with services to help prevent and treat substance abuse issues. Governor’s Office Substance Use Disorder Services and Substance Abuse Block Grant providers will be available at each event to speak about how those who are uninsured or under insured can receive help with opioid addiction.
