AMA State Toolkit to End the Nation’s Drug Overdose Epidemic

From The American Medical Association

The US CDC reported over 100,000 drug overdose deaths in the 12 months ending in April 2021, a first in history. The highest increase (49%) was among those aged 15-24. In 2020, 28 states saw a more than 30% increase in overdose deaths from the previous year. To address this, the American Medical Association and Manatt Health released a toolkit for states to implement evidence-based treatments, improve access to addiction medicine, enforce mental health laws, improve pain patient care, and expand harm reduction efforts. The toolkit also identifies funding opportunities for these initiatives.
