To engage Black women in California experiencing opioid use disorder by providing culturally relevant resources about MAT and other treatment options that empower their commitment to healing.
Why We Do It
Our sisters need our help. Statistics on the opioid epidemic show that from 2011-2016, compared to all other populations, African Americans had the highest increase in the overdose death rate for opioid deaths.
And despite this disproportionate impact, our sisters have been left out of the opioid use disorder treatment conversation and experience a lack of culturally relevant care.
See Her Bloom is here to ensure that Black women are a part of the treatment conversation and are treated with care to change the statistics.
No longer will our sisters be ignored.
No longer will our sisters be treated with stigma.
No longer will our sisters’ opioid addiction increase.
Moving forward we will only #SeeHerBloom.
Who We Are
Led by a coalition of women of color to address women of color and their specific needs concerning opioid use disorder, this program is a part of the California Department of Health Services’ MAT Expansion Project.
See Her Bloom is proud to share that it works with over 15 community partners to execute this important work. It takes a village and our village is strong!
