Opioid Response

Addressing the Opioid Use Public Health Crisis.

Purpose

Olympic Community of Health’s goals are to prevent abuse by improving prescribing practices, expanding access to treatment and prevent overdose deaths by making naloxone more available. Naloxone is used to counteract the effects of an overdose of opioids.

Addressing Disparity

This project aims to better care for Medicaid beneficiaries, including youth, who use, misuse, or abuse, prescription opioids and/or heroin.

Approach

The Three-County Coordinated Opioid Response Project (3CCORP) is a multi-sector collaborative effort made up of a Steering committee and three workgroups. These groups provide guidance for identifying existing efforts and gaps, identifying needs, identifying resources, and avoiding duplication of efforts and resources including other state efforts to reduce opioid-related morbidity and mortality.
