New Report Highlights Successful, Cross-Agency Strategies to Address Substance Use Disorder
States are realigning policies, funding, staffing, and data across agencies to better meet the needs of people living with or at risk of developing substance use disorder (SUD). In 2018, NASHP and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) convened a group of Medicaid and public health leaders to discuss state strategies for working across agencies to address SUD. Their new report highlights recommendations for structuring and advancing cross-agency approaches to SUD prevention and treatment.
