Project Name: Center Point Drug Abuse Alternative Center (CPDAAC) – YOR California
Project Description: Center Point DAAC undertook the improvement and expansion of access to a continuum of opioid use disorder (OUD) prevention, education, outreach, intervention, MAT, and other treatment and recovery services for youth ages 12-24 and their families, thereby preventing opioid overdose related deaths. Center Point DAAC provides a mobile van to do outreach and engagement with youth needing OUD services meeting them where they are (i.e., skate parks, coffee shops, encampments). Center Point DAAC has added the additional sites as stated in our grant which are two High Schools in Santa Rosa, a middle school and Juvenile Hall. In addition, we have provided outreach and engagement to several community agencies and stakeholders, providing information and resources for MAT services. We are implementing the new curriculum we purchased at all our sites, which includes Vaping, one of the leading health concerns for youth today. Center Point DAAC will continue to attend Opioid Coalition meetings quarterly and monthly at various agencies in our community.
