Coalition to Stop Opioid Overdose


In the last decade, opioid misuse and overdose has risen at unprecedented rates and has surpassed traffic fatalities as the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Founded by ASAM in 2016, the Coalition to Stop Opioid Overdose (CSOO) brought together a diverse range of mental health, substance use disorder, and health care professional organizations united around common policy goals to reduce opioid overdose deaths. Together, CSOO aims to elevate the national conversation around opioid overdose and works to enact meaningful and comprehensive policy change that supports prevention, treatment, and remission and recovery services.
