During January 2021, the West Virginia Drug Intervention Institute, Inc. will conduct an analysis of community opinions on SUD, harm reduction, and syringe exchange. The project is not intended to assess or evaluate any specific program but will assess community perceptions and attitudes and determine gaps that exist in addressing SUD (specifically in Kanawha County). The research will include an online (anonymous) short-survey individuals can complete. The survey will be open to the public via the Institute’s website, www.wvdii.org, from January 8 through 22, 2021. Individuals wishing to participate in the additional discussion (listening sessions or focus groups in late January) can choose to identify themselves and share contact information. The project will culminate in the release of a document summarizing the survey data and focus groups along with recommendations for addressing SUD in Kanawha County and the State.
