Aggressively Address the Opioid Epidemic

December 9, 2019

In 2018 we resolved to continue aggressively addressing the opioid overdose death epidemic in collaboration with the departments of Drug and Alcohol Programs, Health, Aging, and many other state agencies as well as our partners at the local, state, and federal level. We’ll continue to work to expand access to quality evidence-based treatment for opioid use disorder, as well as work to keep those in treatment engaged longer in the continuum of treatments. In addition, we’ll continue to focus on prevention, intervention, and post-treatment recovery support services so that we can help all Pennsylvanians in need of treatment get on a path of recovery as well as help many Pennsylvanians altogether avoid the destructive disease of addiction.
