HHS Sec. Becerra Announces Release of New Overdose Prevention Strategy

HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra announced the release of the new HHS Overdose Prevention Strategy. The new strategy focuses on the multiple substances involved in overdose and various treatment approaches for substance use disorders (SUD). The new strategy prioritizes four key target areas–primary prevention, harm reduction, evidence-based treatment, and recovery support—and reflects the Biden-Harris Administration's principles of maximizing health equity for underserved populations. In addition, the strategy provides coordinated, federal support for harm reduction and recovery support efforts, which have been supported by grassroots efforts for decades.
