In October 2017, the South Dakota Opioid Abuse Advisory Committee developed South Dakota’s Statewide Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis. This plan serves as a framework for the state’s response to the opioid crisis and is updated on a regular basis through the work of the Opioid Abuse Advisory Committee and the work of the Departments of Health and Social Services.

  • Treatment and Recovery
  • Reducing Illicit Supply
  • Response to Opioid Misuse or Abuse
