Little Cities of Hope: Turning the Tide of the Opioid Epidemic with Our Available Resources


By Ashley Yaugher, Karen Dolan, Jeanie Willson and Jac’lyn Bera

Our communities have been hit hard by the opioid epidemic, but together we can begin to turn the tide in a positive direction.

Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

An important first step in this process is to spread awareness of the available resources our communities have to offer. We have some great services in our community that are here to help you, your loved ones and family members, and others with substance use or abuse. We have compiled a brief list of resources to become familiar with, and while this is not an exhaustive list, it serves as a stepping stone to learn about resources on yours or a loved ones path to recovery. Please take a look at some of the many resources we have to offer in our communities below:

With the resources we have in our communities and through our local efforts, we can start to change the direction of this tide. Join your local efforts, such as the Carbon Addiction Reduction & Elimination (CARE) Coalition or the HOPE Squad of Carbon & Emery Counties. The Carbon & Emery Opioid & Substance Use Coalition meets the first Monday of the month at 11 a.m. at the USU Eastern Student Center (next meeting is 4/1/19).

Together, we can make a difference and help our communities. When each of us within our community know the available resources, we can begin to share them with people who are in need and support one another. We can accomplish so much in our community when we unite. Let’s turn the tide of this epidemic together, in our Little Cities of Hope!
