NACCHO Releases New Report: “Local Health Department Approaches to Opioid Use Prevention and Response”

Much of the day-to-day work of opioid prevention and response falls to local health departments. To better understand this critical role, NACCHO staff conducted a survey and are releasing a new report, “Local Health Department Approaches to Opioid Use Prevention and Response: An Environmental Scan.” The scan surveyed 198 local health departments in efforts to create a foundational understanding of LHD opioid use prevention and response efforts to inform priorities at the local, state, and national levels. Topics covered in this report include opioid workforce, partnerships, programmatic and clinical services, policy, and data collection and evaluation.
