Opioids — either prescription medications or an illicit drug — present the most serious drug crisis the US has ever experienced. Nearly 2,000 Californians died last year from opioids, devastating families and communities across the state. All of us - doctors, pharmacists, parents, teachers, advocates, mental health providers, law enforcement, and others - have a role to play in combating this crisis.
We are a network of coalitions fighting the opioid epidemic in our communities. We believe that by working together, we can lower the supply of opioids, promote recovery from addiction, and prevent unnecessary deaths. The Network offers a forum for all coalitions, organizations and individuals working to combat the opioid crisis. Click here to learn more.
