Is your organization working to combat the impacts of the opioid epidemic?

The Region 12 Opioid Abatement Council, representing Douglas County, Colorado is seeking agencies to carry out a variety of programming to combat the opioid epidemic in our region. Specifically, the Region 12 Opioid Council received opioid settlement funding to address gaps and opportunities in prevention, treatment, and recovery services for people with opioid use disorder (OUD) as well as other co-occurring substance use disorders (SUDs) and mental illnesses in the region.

After a detailed planning process to illuminate the region’s greatest needs pertaining to SUD, Region 12 has decided to dedicate dollars to the following seven programs:

Now, the Council needs your help. If you work in this space, consider applying for grant funding by March 12. To review and access the Region 12 Opioid Council Request for Qualifications, visit Rocky Mountain Bid System here: www.rockymountainbidsystem.com

In 2020-2021, opioid settlements were reached nationwide with Johnson & Johnson and the nation’s three largest drug distribution companies to resolve claims by state and local governments that these companies contributed to the opioid epidemic. The $750 million in settlement funding must be used in alignment with the settlement, which includes funding for opioid abuse, prevention and treatment.

Of that settlement funding, 60% will be distributed to 19 regional areas in Colorado for local use. Douglas County is its own region (Region 12). Douglas County received $1.4 million in 2023 and is expecting to receive up to $2.5 million in 2024.
