Many thanks!

So many great, talented people devote their hard work fighting the opioid crisis. The Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse and Prevention would like to thank everyone for their dedication, as well as their diligent work with state lawmakers to develop the new package of bills that Gov. Jared Polis recently signed into law. The measures will strengthen Colorado’s fight against the opioid epidemic, as well as bolster the resources for substance abuse prevention and treatment.

The Consortium wants to thank all of the Consortium partners for your hard work, which contributed to these successes. Each work group member and participant is part of this success. We’d also like to thank the bill sponsors:
