CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Health officials in West Virginia say a plan to combat the state’s opioid crisis has been released for public comment.
The Department of Health and Human Resources released the response plan Thursday. It was prepared by a panel of public health experts after a review of public comments, a public meeting on Dec. 21 and input from state agencies.
Public comments will be accepted through Jan. 19 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The plan eventually will be presented to Gov. Jim Justice and the state Legislature. It focus on six areas, including prevention, early intervention, treatment, overdose reversal and recovery.
