The Utah Opioid Task Force's Opioid Settlement Advisory Committee is preparing a guide to assist the state and local communities in utilizing funds that are expected from various opioid litigations and settlements.
Gathering information and opinions from subject matter experts and from members of the public will help ensure Utah policymakers and stakeholders have reliable guidance on how to best use resources.
Working with legislators, community activists, the medical community, and the Drug Enforcement Agency, Attorney General Sean Reyes organized the Utah Opioid Task Force in 2017 to combat the opioid epidemic. The Utah Opioid Task Force is a voluntary task force made up of representatives from partner agencies and organizations as well as community members across the state. The mission of the task force is to take action against opioid abuse with innovative collaborative efforts. The collaborative process brings together leaders to create evidence-based solutions that take on the opioid crisis with direct action.
The Utah Public Opioid Dashboard (UPOD) is an interactive visual presentation of indicators tracking opioid data in Utah and is presented by the Utah Department of Health.
The intent of the UPOD is to provide actionable data related to the opioid epidemic.
Once survey responses have been compiled and presented, we will have a link here for access to the final results.
