Mayahuel Prevention Consortium

The Mayahuel Prevention Consortium (MPC) was accepted into the Substance Abuse Coalition Leaders of Arizona initiative. Coalitions from across Arizona are working together in a first-of-its-kind effort to save lives in Arizona. Coalition leaders are working together to create the “Rise of Fentanyl” toolkit to aid communities in preventing and reversing overdoses. The toolkit is comprised of 4 sections or “tabs” that each focus on a different aspect of substance abuse. The content within the toolkit consists of: counterfeit pills and fentanyl, naloxone, youth resiliency, and stigma among substance use disorders. The overall goal of the project is to educate and create awareness for youth, parents, and communities throughout the state of Arizona on the dangers of fentanyl and how to mitigate increased use. Currently, SACLAZ is being implemented in the servicer zip codes of 85705, 85706 and the neighboring areas. Nearly 85 individuals in the community have been reached through presentations, trainings, and outreach efforts. This project is funded through the State Opioid Response Substance Abuse Coalition Leaders of Arizona.
