Project Opioid: A Regional Collective Impact
Central Florida is grappling with the rising tide of addiction and deaths related to the opioid crisis, similar to every other community in America.
In Orange County alone, opioid deaths have increased by 70% in a three-year period.
The Central Florida Initiative on Opioid Abuse (or "Project Opioid") has been established to begin a conversation about this critical issue facing our community.
In Central Florida, we know that problems can only be solved when we unite around a common strategy.
We are taking a collaborative approach that will allow us to stem the tide of tragedy and start saving lives through leadership, research, education, and policy efforts.
