The Wellness Network Committee on Substance Safety and Overdose Prevention works to address substance use safety and overdose prevention in the UT community through a public health and harm reduction framework. This committee also seeks to provide education and reduce stigma surrounding help seeking behaviors. A focus of the committee has been on preventing opioid misuse and overdose via the provision of naloxone.
All campus community members with an interest in the prevention of overdose or substance safety are invited to participate. Email our committee chair Matthew Olson to learn more or get involved.
Matthew is originally from the Houston area and enjoys all sports, playing with his daughter, and spending time with his livestock. Matthew chairs both the high-risk drinking prevention committee and committee on substance safety and overdose prevention.
