Misson Statement: Building Collaboratives to Address the Opioid Epidemic in El Dorado County

The El Dorado County Opioid Coalition is a community-wide collaborative of public and private partners working together to address the opioid epidemic in El Dorado County. Coalition members meet quarterly to share strategies, discuss interventions and adopt best practices toward the shared goal of reducing opioid addiction. As a result of our collective efforts, the county has seen a steady decline in opioid prescriptions, an increase in the availability of Medication-Assisted Treatment and a decrease in opioid overdose-related deaths.
