Doing Everything We Can to Make Opioid Abuse a Part of the Past

Through educational programs, scientific research, and community outreach, UT supports statewide healthiness. We’re conducting groundbreaking research to better understand opioid addiction and prevent relapses. We’ve created evidence-based substance abuse treatment, and the curriculum to teach millions how to use it. And we’ve developed a digital tool that helps identify drug-seeking patients with a history of abuse. UT Extension has partnered with the National Council on Patient Information and Education to address medication literacy in Tennessee.

Everywhere you look, UT is improving the state’s health.
