Many communities across the country have come together to develop strategic plans to address opioid abuse, including the City of Baltimore, the State of New Jersey, the State of Pennsylvania, and the State of Wisconsin. Samples of these plans can be found on the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Training and Technical Assistance Center website.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Opioid Overdose Prevention Toolkit (2016) provides communities and local governments with material to develop practices and policies to help prevent opioid-related overdoses and deaths.
Some law enforcement agencies found it helpful to develop pocket cards or brochures that can be easily distributed. Sample pocket cards and brochures are included in the resources below.
