The State of California is leveraging a multi-pronged, strategic collaboration at both the state and local levels to build a comprehensive approach to address the opioid epidemic. This includes coordination of efforts through a statewide multi-agency workgroup; changes in policies of public payer healthcare systems; mandating the use of the prescription drug monitoring program (CURES); expansion of MAT services availability and access, implementation of a naloxone distribution program; increasing access to naloxone through pharmacies; physician and pharmacist education; public awareness and education campaigns for youth, seniors, and high burden rural counties; and support of more than 30 local opioid safety coalitions.
