Waukesha County's Plan to Fight the Opioid Crisis

 

Waukesha County’s plan to reduce the number of opioid overdose deaths in the county focuses on these strategies:

  • Scanning the county to identify risk and protective factors for all county residents
  • Offering free trainings open to all county residents on the administration of naloxone, a drug that can reverse an opioid overdose
  • Distributing free kits containing naloxone to county residents who express interest
  • Opiate overdose prevention education sessions in the county
  • Reaching out to opioid users who have experienced an overdose and providing support through the county crisis system

This work plan was announced in May 2017. It is funded by a grant provided by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. The state received a grant from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to prevent prescription drug/opioid overdose related deaths.
