Supporting State Policy in Responding to the Opioid Crisis

State policymakers are navigating changes in substance use policy, such as new flexibilities and expansions in service delivery and harm reduction, increases in federal grants and Medicaid options, and new funding resulting from legal settlements. This project will build on a previous FORE grant that enabled the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) to establish the State Policy Center for Opioid Use Disorder Treatment and Access, which has helped states implement policies to expand access to OUD treatment. NASHP will continue to highlight and inform OUD and other substance use disorder policies across states, with a particular focus on strategies for administering opioid response funds and engaging state executive branch officials on OUD prevention, treatment, and recovery policy.
