Our mission is to train, educate, advocate, and provide support and resources to all who are affected by opiate abuse and overdoses for both users and non-users.
S.C.O.O.P. (Springfield Coalition for Opioid Overdose Prevention) is a diverse group of people who live and/or work in Springfield. We are concerned about the increase in overdoses in our community from heroin, oxycodone/Percocet, morphine, methadone, and other opioids. We have come together to offer culturally sensitive support for users and non-users through:
- Training and education for individuals and organizations
- Linkages to resources for treatment and other assistance
- Overdose reversal strategies: how to access and administer Narcan
We are not here to judge, blame, or preach — our goal is to save lives.
