Cross-Agency Approaches to Substance Use Disorder Prevention and Treatment

March 20, 2019

 

Cross-agency collaborations are critical to developing and executing comprehensive approaches to substance use disorder (SUD) prevention and treatment. State public health and Medicaid agencies must look beyond their traditional roles to design a strategy greater than the sum of individual agency activities to achieve broad population health impact. ASTHO and the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) shared national recommendations on how public health and Medicaid officials can launch and sustain partnerships that align policies, funding, staffing, and data across agencies to address SUD.

This webinar shares insights from state officials to address the needs of people living with or at risk of developing SUD and features state examples of successful partnerships in action.
