TOGETHER WE THRIVE: We’re grateful for efforts underway in Becker County, Minnesota to address the opioid epidemic. With the county experiencing a 58% increase in overdose deaths from 2019-2020, expanding access to peer recovery services—as well as providing a safe place for sober activities—has been a serious need.

Through the Rural Response to the Opioid Epidemic grant, Becker County stakeholders came together to support opening a new Recovery Community Organization satellite location. Approximately 20 community partners attended the session to build capacity for the project and identify potential locations. Funding for the Rural Response to the Opioid Epidemic project is provided by the Bureau of Justice. Essentia Health is privileged to be a part of this effort. #togetherwethrive

Remember—your age, family history, and other factors may put you at higher risk for certain types of cancer. No guideline replaces the importance of having regular conversations with your provider about your cancer risk.
