Health Equity Report Card: St. Clair County

Sources and Partners


The Substance Use Disorder – Health Equity Report Card is supported through the Flint Odyssey House (FOH) and Michigan State University’s Addiction Consortium on Research and Education Network (ACORN).

Thank you to our partner, Flint Odyssey House, a multi-service therapeutic community organization dedicated to addressing substance use disorders and mental health issues in culturally diverse populations. FOH’s mission is to provide intervention, prevention, and treatment services, and their vision is to break the cycle of substance abuse and poverty by returning individuals to their families and communities as productive members of society through a holistic and comprehensive recovery approach.

ACORN is focused on addressing substance use disorder issues in underserved communities. Its primary goals are community engagement, improving clinical care for SUD, and conducting research to better understand and enhance the SUD service system. ACORN works to bridge the gap in available SUD treatment services and resources, conducting research, and disseminating findings to inform policy, practice, and community stakeholders, ultimately striving for health equity in SUD care.
