Our Initiatives

A core part of our work and mission, OPEN initiatives – from opioid prescribing recommendations to youth outreach – are designed to educate, engage, and encourage transformative solutions. 

Pain Management

Learn the best practices for postoperative pain management, including how to best utilize medications as well as non-medication alternatives.


Substance Use Disorder prevention requires a comprehensive approach. Find out more about safe storage, disposal, reducing stigma, and more. 

Harm Reduction

Discover harm reduction resources that offer a compassionate, people-centered approach focused on safety and overdose prevention.

Substance Use Disorder

As SUDs increase, helping people progress comfortably through surgical recovery is critical. Learn about screening and care coordination.

Youth Engagement

Empowering teens with trustworthy information about opioids and their effects can help informed decision making. See our resources.

The Overdose Prevention Engagement Network (OPEN) is dedicated to improving lives and reducing harms of substance use. We share education and resources to strengthen person-centered prevention, treatment, and recovery.
