Helping tackle prescription opioid misuse, addiction, and overdose
According to the Utah State Health Department, Utah is fourth in the
nation for drug overdose deaths (2012–2014) and has experienced a
400 percent increase in prescription opioid-related deaths, averaging
one opioid-related death every day in 2014. In 2012, Utah providers
wrote 85.8 opioid pain reliever prescriptions per 100 people, the
22nd highest prescribing rate in the country.
To tackle this problem, Intermountain partnered with the Division of
Substance Abuse and Mental Health, the Utah Department of Health,
Weber Human Services, Davis Behavioral Health, and other community
agencies in 2015 to form the Opioid Community Collaborative (OCC).
