Supporting Local Planning for Substance Use Disorder and Overdose Prevention Strategies

The North Carolina Institute of Medicine (NCIOM) is supporting county and regional multi-sector planning around substance use disorder and overdose prevention strategies in anticipation of forthcoming opioid settlement funds. Since July 2021, the NCIOM has engaged in several key activities, including the development of a learning collaborative process that will bring county-level stakeholders together to connect and align, conducting key perspective interviews, focus groups, and listening sessions to ensure inclusivity and understanding of the impacts of substance use disorders and overdose in communities across the state, and convening the leaders of several workstreams related to the opioid settlement to promote coordination.
