California Opioid Safety Network: Saving Lives, Together

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. This is a network of coalitions fighting the opioid epidemic in our communities. CCCMEDS Coalition is a member. 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.
