Statewide Opioid Safety Workgroup

In 2014, the Director and State Public Health Officer of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) convened the Statewide Opioid Safety (SOS) Workgroup. The Director and State Public Health Officer continues to provide leadership to the SOS Workgroup.
The SOS Workgroup provides a forum to encourage collaboration across various state sectors to align activities and messages in addressing the opioid epidemic in California. The SOS Workgroup brings together more than 40 state and non-government stakeholder organizations/agencies to improve coordination and expand joint efforts to address opioid misuse, addiction, and overdose deaths. In addition, the SOS Workgroup has four supporting task forces that include local and non-government entities.
