Opioid Prevention Team
Strategic Prevention Framework
Richie Bean, SPF Rx Prevention Coordinator
The Opioid Prevention Team (OPT) has been tasked by the State of Minnesota to tackle the opioid crisis. We work together in several communities around Cass County and into Itasca County. We think through the current situation and discuss how to address this epidemic. We gather data, analyze the data we've gathered, and use it to narrow our focus and prioritize to where the biggest changes could be made. We work together with family centers, WTC, S.T.E.P., law enforcement, doctors, pharmacists, community members, and area schools to reach youth and adults in order to prevent the misuse of prescription drugs.
