A Regional Conversation
You may have heard that in late February 2022, several pharmaceutical companies reached a $26 billion settlement to compensate state and local governments for the costs they incurred as a part of the opioid epidemic in the United States. But, did you know that these monies are due to begin flowing into states and communities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska as early as this summer? This money will be used to address the consequences of the opioid epidemic by supporting opioid use disorder treatment – and the prevention of future opioid misuse. But, there is dramatic latitude in how states and local governments can and plan to use their allocations. Join Northwest PTTC Co-Directors Drs. Kevin Haggerty and Brittany Cooper to learn more about the status of opioid settlements and their distribution for each state in our region, and how, as a united community of prevention professionals, we can elevate prevention voices in this conversation.
