The Help End Addiction for Life Initiative

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), in partnership with the National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO), released a case study on the rural Kentucky Help End Addiction for Life (HEAL) initiative. This case study provides an in-depth examination of HEAL’s unique features and highlights the voices of local providers and stakeholders. The lessons learned by the HEAL coalition offer strategies for other communities to consider in their own collaborations to reduce opioid use.  The full report can be accessed here.
