The priority areas identified were:
- Access to services and insufficient services
- Medical detoxification
- Jail re-entry linkage
- Transitional and recovery housing
Other future COAT action items include expanding naloxone distribution, expand treatment bed capacity and explore grant opportunities. Currently there are two federal grant opportunities to assist local communities in addressing the epidemic. The state would then disperse the dollars based upon the density of the epidemic in each county to local Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services and Public Health Boards.
