Westminster's Building Rhythm thru Recovery (BRTR) seeks to implement Opiod Use Disorder (OUD) education and training in partnership with representatives from the Family Medical Counseling Services (FMCS), Southwest Renaissance Development Corporation (a non-profit within WPC), and The Leadership Council for Healthy Communities (LCHC). BRTR consists of 15 events that reach 800 individuals throughout the duration of the grant.
The project consists of two major components--
WPC is a community anchor institution that pursues a faith-based, social justice-minded mission through weekly community events that attract 1,000 individuals. WPC will provide OUD education at each of its 15 events through the month of September and seek to recruit participants for its naloxone training (see calendar). Members of the working group will disseminate pre- and post-surveys and complete sign-in sheets at the community events listed below from September 9 – September 29. Each event will include a table staffed by a working group member and community volunteer and include DC Department of Health literature and tailored magnets about the opioid crisis and OUD resource information.
