The DASH Center and Wayne State University have teamed up with over 30 community, academic, and health care partners to develop Hope HQ   , an evidence-based program for children aged 5-17 years and their families who have experienced the death of a parent or significant person from an opioid/other drug overdose within the past 10 years. Hope HQ    is currently focused on children and families in southeast Michigan where the majority of drug overdose deaths in the state occur.  Our multidisciplinary team is currently fundraising to expand year-round services for families throughout the state and beyond.
