Nearly 8 North Carolinians die every day from opioid overdose.
“The opioid epidemic has torn families apart and killed thousands of North Carolinians. While no amount of money will ever be enough, these settlements will bring much-needed programs and services to North Carolina.”– Attorney General Josh Stein
About the Opioid Settlements
North Carolina is part of a historic $26 billion agreement that will help bring desperately needed relief to communities impacted by opioids. These funds will be used to support treatment, recovery, harm reduction, and other life-saving programs and services in communities throughout the state. North Carolina’s Opioid and Substance Use Action Plan lays out concrete strategies to advance prevention, reduce harm, and connect people to the care that they need.
