Building stronger communities is a goal of the MARTI institute’s Opioid Prevention and Community Health (OPACH) Initiative. This TalkAboutAddiction.TV website is one component, but it also includes workshops for parents and caregivers of youth (visit http://PtPDrugFree.com for more information), and a public awareness campaign.

MARTI, whose formal title is the Mid-Atlantic Research and Training Institute for Community and Behavioral Health, is one of the oldest institutes at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP).  For nearly 30 years MARTI has done research and training on the topic of addiction and will host another summer institute in July of 2018.
