State Toolkit to End the Nation’s Drug Overdose Epidemic: Leading-Edge Actions and Strategies to Remove Barriers to Evidence-base Patient Care

The 2022 AMA-Manatt Toolkit builds on a previously published roadmap by providing actionable resources that states can use to take specific actions in six policy areas:

  • Increase access to evidence-based treatments to help patients with a substance use disorder (SUD).
  • Ensure access to addiction medicine, psychiatry, and other trained physicians.
  • Enforce mental health and substance use disorder (SUD) parity laws.
  • Improve access to multidisciplinary, multimodal care for patients with pain.
  • Expand harm reduction efforts to reduce death and disease.
  • Improve monitoring and evaluation.
