The Michigan Opioid Collaborative

We are so excited to share that the Michigan Opioid Collaborative (MOC) and Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network (OPEN) are now one unified organization. We believe that by joining our efforts, we will be able to have a greater impact on improving lives and reducing the harms of Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) in Michigan and beyond.

Moving forward, we will use a new acronym that defines our shared work and purpose: Overdose Prevention Engagement Network (OPEN). We also have a new tagline – Prevention. Treatment. Recovery – which reflects our organization’s combined capabilities.

Together, we thoughtfully discussed and workshopped to develop an inclusive mission statement, which we believe sets a solid foundation for our future work: OPEN is a diverse team dedicated to improving lives and reducing harms of substance use. By engaging with individuals, communities, and organizations, we share education and resources to strengthen person-centered prevention, treatment, and recovery.

We look forward to having you join us through our programming and education, take a look at our upcoming offerings on the new website we will eventually migrate to: We are still offering CE opportunities but moving forward all events will be posted here:

DEA Training Requirements

Prescribers who are either renewing or applying for a new controlled substance DEA registration are required to complete 8-hours of SUD training due to the Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act.

Michigan Opioid Collaborative’s previous and upcoming free trainings and webinars will meet the new DEA SUD training requirements. Check out our events page for our upcoming events and look for the ones that say “Meets DEA SUD Training Requirements” or “DEA Training”.
