Stop Overdose Deaths: Monitoring Comprehensiveness of State Policy to Prevent Overdose Deaths

Because the opioid crisis affects so many parts of society, it requires comprehensive, coordinated, and multifaceted policy responses. Legal and policy experts at Temple University will create a roadmap for better governance of the opioid crisis, built from evidence, expertise, and stakeholder engagement as well as an open-access data portal that publishes policy briefs and tracks, scores, and ranks laws and policies related to opioid use disorder and opioid overdose deaths. The goal is to inform state and federal policymakers and advocates about what new policies are needed and how they can be effectively implemented.
