Use of opioids such as heroin, morphine, and prescription pain relievers has expanded to levels of dependency in many individuals. Several factors contribute to the breadth and complexity of this urgent problem: severe chronic pain, greater use of prescriptions, aggressive marketing by pharmaceutical companies, among others. Updates about treatment, services, solutions, and resources exist here in Hawaii to reduce harm and improve quality of life for all.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review approved medications to treat opioid use disorder.
2. Discuss opioid intervention and updates about management of opioid use disorder.

FLAVORS HOOK KIDS: Did you know that there are more than 15,000 flavors used in tobacco products to hook the next generation on nicotine?

We’re in the community!

Every penny you contribute stays right here in Hawai‘i.

The tobacco industry spends more than $25 million each year in Hawai‘i marketing their products to kids while sugary drink manufacturers pay fitness bloggers and researchers to promote diets that include soda. These industries care about one thing and one thing only: profit. That’s where we come in. We, and our coalitions, work every day to stop them in their tracks. We shine a light on their bad acts and we fight for policies that promote health for all Hawai’i residents and visitors. Your gift allows us to do more… and it is tax-deductible!

Are you a like-minded non-profit in need of help?

We know that there can be serious obstacles to get a cause, campaign or program off the ground. At HIPHI, we have years of experience and can help in a number of ways, from fiscal sponsorship and management to meeting and conference planning. Contact us to find out more.
