Drug Settlement Deal

All thanks to a vote on March 1st by the Opioid Settlement Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery Board, two key resources in Oregon for preventing and treating substance use disorder and overdose will receive a total of $17 million over the next two years. An allocation of $4 million will fund the development of a unified statewide data system to collect, analyze and publish data on substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery services, with a focus on their availability and effectiveness. The remaining $13 million goes toward the Save Lives Oregon Harm Reduction Clearinghouse to keep people alive and support safer communities.
