Abstract

The opioid problem in Western Pennsylvania and across the United States is a public health and public safety emergency. As reflected in the statistical information set forth in this report, overdose is the leading cause of accidental death, and heroin and opioids are involved in the majority of those cases. The direct and indirect costs of this epidemic to victims and families are staggering. The problem is terribly complicated and requires urgent attention, new ideas, and a solution. This report seeks to provide an extensive inventory of efforts already underway in Western Pennsylvania, deliver a framework for moving forward together, and inform other communities and regions as they work to address the heroin and opioid epidemic.
