Opioid addiction is an enormous and frightening challenge for the entire country. The potential impacts to Minnesota cities include an array of significant, direct, and indirect costs to public health and public safety resources. To help cities deal with this issue, the League has compiled a list of reliable resources created by organizations with expertise and experience in this area.
The League will continue to watch this issue and update this list as necessary. If you have a story to share or a request for more resources, please contact the League at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Feb. 7, the League is hosting a free information session designed to educate city staff about potential strategies and outcomes to help address the opioid epidemic.
