Need help selecting and implementing high-impact opioid abatement strategies for your community?

MAHEC can help you make the most of North Carolina's opioid settlement funding opportunities using one or more of the following approved strategies*:

  • Collaborative strategic planning
  • Evidence-based addiction treatment
  • Recovery support services
  • Recovery housing support
  • Employment-related services
  • Early intervention programs
  • Naloxone distribution
  • Post-overdose response teams
  • Syringe service programs
  • Criminal justice diversion programs
  • Addiction treatment for incarcerated persons
  • Reentry programs for recently incarcerated persons

You know your community and its needs, but choosing which strategies to implement with opioid settlement funds can challenging to navigate. Whether you are new to this work or looking to expand your existing opioid prevention and treatment services, MAHEC can help.

MAHEC has experience and can help you manage and evaluate programs that prevent and address the impact of opioid use disorder. We've been providing opioid consultation, training, and treatment programs across North Carolina for over a decade.
