Drug overdose deaths are at epidemic levels in the United States. As communities work to combat this complex issue, coalitions are often expected to lead the way. This issue can take coalitions into areas beyond prevention, to address harm reduction, overdose prevention, naloxone distribution and more.
During this two-part series, CADCA’s Trainers took a deep look at the Opioid Continuum of Care (e.g., prevention, intervention, treatment and aftercare) and discussed the unique characteristics of each stage, plus COVID-19’s impact on the crisis.
Participants examined the role of their coalitions in the opioid crisis and ways they can engage community partners and members during the pandemic.
