SELECT A STATE TO VIEW THEIR PREVENTION EFFORTS
The Overdose Prevention Strategies website was created by the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators, Inc. (NADDI) as an initiative to provide a centralized location for all of our nations overdose prevention efforts. The website is a compilation of the identifiable overdose prevention related resources in existence within the framework of each state. The primary focus is on the programs, laws, and resources of each individual state as they combat the substance abuse problem within their communities.
NADDI’s attempt to provide a centralized website is meant to be used as a resource tool to streamline efforts for individuals seeking answers. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate an approach to the development of a model overdose prevention program that can be used as a unified template across the United States to combat this growing epidemic.

Hi, my name is Lisa McElhaney.
I'm the Chief Operating Officer of the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI).
The NADDI membership would like to welcome you to one of our favorite initiatives. We hope that you find this resource useful in your search for answers.
The Opioid Epidemic has been a significant public health problem that has impacted society on multiple levels for many decades. Directly and indirectly, every community is affected by drug abuse and addiction, as is every family. While drug use patterns and trends fluctuate with various applied prevention efforts, we are currently scrambling to find solid solutions to address this rampant epidemic.
The NADDI mission considers the fine art of networking and increasing public awareness to be the strongest tools in our fight against this epidemic. Awareness leads to proactive actions as witnessed by the multitude of efforts around our nation. Imagine what we could accomplish with a strong unified approach.
With this in mind, NADDI has attempted to identify, state by state, the resources and programs that are currently in existence, and ultimately locate the best practices in effect. The ultimate goal is to facilitate the approach to the development of a model overdose prevention program. This important step can only be accomplished by first identifying the solid multi-faceted tactics that are gaining ground, and then adopting these measures as a complete package.
Phase I of our website launched in June of 2017 and we have edited, updated, and expanded much of our information as our favored initiative has evolved.
As we continue to gather information, we know we may be missing some important resources so please help us to identify the efforts in your community. If you know of any programs or initiatives that would strengthen our website please let us know. Together we have strength and fuel hope to those in need.
