The prevalence of opioid use disorder in the United States continues to rise and is a public health crisis. Collaboration is essential for success in preventing opioid overdose deaths. Together, we can better coordinate efforts to prevent opioid overdoses and deaths. 

CenCal Health believes it is increasingly important that providers have access to the appropriate resources. Here are some key resources to help providers carefully weight the risks and benefits when making decisions about opioid treatment. If you have any questions or need additional information or resources, please contact CenCal Health Pharmacy Department at (805) 562-1080.
