Rural Risk: Mobile Clinics Help Tackle Multifaceted Opioid Crisis
Aug 20, 2018 - Describes the work of two mobile clinics in the Ohio Valley working to help minimize the harm caused by the opioid epidemic. One provides education about the use of naloxone, teaching people how to help a person who has overdosed on opioids, as well as distributing naloxone. The other offers needle-cleaning kits, testing for hepatitis C, and refers people to other health services in their area. Using a mobile clinic allows these programs to reach rural people who might not have the ability to travel for these services.
