Emergency Preparedness

Opioid Crisis Response

Our dedicated Opioid Public Health Analyst plays a key role in addressing the local opioid crisis by improving data collection methods on morbidity and mortality, analyzing what populations are most at risk, and developing strategic initiatives for response and prevention.

The purpose is to educate, communicate, and coordinate with frontline workers, social services, and the public to disperse information on harm reduction and treatment resources.

By organizing and mobilizing better outreach measures, the incidence of overdoses can be greatly reduced, and each affected community will be able to sustain safer circumstances.

The Overdose Data 2 Action (OD2A) Cooperative Agreement

The Overdose Data 2 Action (OD2A) Cooperative Agreement is funded by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  This program employs a Public Health Analyst who assists with the development and implementation of local/district opioid, stimulant, and polysubstance overdose prevention and response strategies, including enrollment facilitation of the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA).

The public health analyst participates in 5 district wide initiatives: prevention, treatment and recovery, law enforcement, data, outreach.  The public health analyst maintains the district’s cluster response protocol, strategic plan, and prevention and treatment resource list. For more information contact Beatrice King at 770-876-5068​ or Beatrice.King1@dph.ga.gov.

Medically Assisted Treatment

MAT is a proven treatment for opioid use disorder. The backbone of this treatment is FDA approved medications. Methadone and buprenorphine activate opioid receptors in the brain, preventing painful opioid withdrawal symptoms without causing euphoria; naltrexone blocks the effects of opioids.
