California Launches New Opioid Resource Website


California launched a new, comprehensive opioid website that gives Californians a single resource for prevention, data, treatment, and support information. The website, OPIOIDS.CA.GOV, is part of Governor Newsom’s multi-pronged approach to connect Californians with information to prevent and reduce overdoses and deaths and support those struggling with substance use and addiction.

All Californians should visit OPIOIDS.CA.GOV to learn more and help us spread awareness and save lives. Together we can make a difference in combating this crisis.

We are also interested in hearing feedback from our partners about this new resource as we continue to iterate and improve the website. Please share your thoughts or comments with us at CommsOutreach@cdph.ca.gov.
