Debunking The Myth That There Are Plenty Of Resources On Tuesday's Access Utah

Next time on Access Utah, we’ll present another live episode of Debunked, the only Utah podcast combining evidence-based health practices with storytelling to challenge the stereotypes, and debunk the myths about harm reduction, substance use disorders and homelessness. This time we’re debunking the myth, “There are plenty of resources but people just don’t want the help.”

We’ll be joined by the podcast host, Don Lyons; Lanette Denton, a coach with Utah Support Advocates for Recovery Awareness (USARA); and Heather Hogue, Continuum of Care Project Coordinator with United Way of Utah County.

The Debunked Podcast was created by the Utah State University Office of Health Equity and Community Engagement and Tribal and Rural Opioid Initiative, which are housed within the USU Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services, Department of Kinesiology and Health Science and USU Extension. The program is made possible by SAMHSA, Utah Public Radio and community partners.
