SELECT A STATE TO VIEW THEIR PREVENTION EFFORTS
The NADDI Report Card is based upon a comprehensive evaluation of the identifiable overdose prevention related resources in existence within the framework of each state. The criteria for the grade is based upon the state’s overall proactive approach(s) to mandates, performance levels, and achievements in areas of planning, implementation, and support. The grade is an indicator of each individual state(s) efforts and focus on the substance abuse problem within their communities.
NADDI has attempted to identify, state by state, the overdose prevention resources and programs that are currently in existence, and ultimately locate the best practices in effect. The ultimate goal is to facilitate an approach to the development of a model overdose prevention program.

Hi, my name is Lisa McElhaney. I'm the President of the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI).
Drug abuse is a major public health problem that impacts society on multiple levels. 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, there is no one solid answer to address this rampant problem.
NADDI believes the strongest tool in our fight against this epidemic is the fine art of networking and increasing public awareness on the many facets of this issue. 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. This phase is a basic platform to grow from and encompasses many of the original strategic steps being implemented across the nation. Phase II is already in process and will include numerous developing programs and new initiatives.
While we gather information, we know we may be missing some important information so please help us to identify the efforts in your community. If you know of any programs or initiatives that would strengthen our approach please let us know. Together we have strength and fuel hope to those in need.
