Drug Overdose Prevention Program

Drug Overdose Prevention Program

Opioid-related deaths have increased sharply in the United States since 1999, and Idaho has not been left untouched by this epidemic. The Drug Overdose Prevention Program (DOPP) aims to decrease drug overdoses and deaths by improving community capacity to address substance use misuse, and use through prevention, recovery support services, and treatment in Ada, Boise, Elmore, and Valley Counties.

  • What is DOPP
  • Our Goals:

    • Improve access to and education on naloxone as a harm reduction tool to prevent overdose
    • Build partnerships to improve individual, organizational and community capacity
    • Address social determinants of health as an indicator of health outcomes in individuals with substance use disorders
    • Leverage state & local resources
    • Develop community-specific strategies with the collaboration of local partners
    • Promote evidence-based strategies to reduce overdose risks and drug mortality
    • Provide technical assistance & education
