Local opioid safety coalitions bring together a broad group of community stakeholders committed to increasing access to addiction treatment, decreasing opioid overuse, and reducing overdose deaths. Advocates and community leaders from public health, hospitals, addiction treatment, medical societies, law enforcement, health plans, and others come together to find creative ways to solve the opioid epidemic in their areas.

CHCF supports the Center for Health Leadership and Practice, a program of the Public Health Institute, to manage the California Opioid Safety Network. The network provides the coalitions with a forum for peer-to-peer learning, resources and best practices from the field as well as ongoing communications with news updates, webinar invitations, and other opportunities.
