The High Desert Rural Opioid Partnership is a two-county consortium of partners dedicated to increasing resources related to opioid abuse and other substance abuse. Lake and Klamath county representatives from primary care, behavioral health, law enforcement, public health, prevention, and more are examining existing resources to prevent, treat, and support individuals in recovery from opioid and other substance abuse.

In 2019, the consortium commissioned a survey residents of Lake and Klamath counties to determine what they know about opioids. Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio conducted the survey and analyzed the results.

The High Desert Rural Opioid Partnership is using survey results to create county-level and regional needs assessments, which will be used to create county-level and regional strategic and workforce plans. The consortium’s work will continue at least through June 30, 2020.

All consortium efforts are funded by a Rural Communities Opioid Response Program-Planning grant from HRSA. Lake Health District was awarded the grant in 2018. For more information about the grant or the project, contact Lake Health District grant writer and coordinator Kristi Albertson at (541) 947-2114 ext. 398 or email her at kalbertson@lakehealthdistrict.org.
