Home » Opioid Crisis » Overdose Addiction Council

Recognizing the extent of the crisis, Governor Kay Ivey established the Alabama Opioid Overdose and Addiction Council on August 8, 2017 naming three co-chairs, the Commissioner of the Alabama Department of Mental Health (ADMH), the State Health Officer, and the State Attorney General, as the Council leadership. The Council was charged with the task of developing a comprehensive strategic plan to abate the opioid crisis in Alabama.

Per the governor’s order, six standing committees were assembled to explore the problem and make recommendations. The workgroups are identified below.

  1. Data
  2. Prescriber-Dispenser
  3. Rescue (Naloxone)
  4. Treatment-Recovery
  5. Prevention-Education
  6. Law Enforcement
