Action On Opioids

The opioid epidemic across Long Island, and across America, is a public health emergency. Let's treat it that way!

This means:

  • An urgent, all-out effort involving institutions and leaders in every sector -- including those (like LI-CAN) that were on the sidelines for far too long
  • Fighting this battle on every front: prevention, harm reduction, comprehensive treatment, sustained recovery, strengthening families
  • Ending the stigma, shame and silence surrounding addiction
  • Developing new approaches, not just spending our time and tax dollars on 'more of the same'
  • Holding one another accountable through clear assignments, deadlines and evaluation

LI-CAN initiated the Long Island Covenant to End the Opioid Epidemic as a vehicle for this all-out effort.

Priorities: What is needed to reverse the opioid epidemic?
