Opioid/Substance Use Disorders
  • The Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy announced it is partnering with Third Horizon Strategies (THS) to help communities invest opioid settlement funds. Through a $365,000 grant from the Elevance Health Foundation, the two organizations will create a series of toolkits and playbooks for policymakers to maximize use of these funds and support local, sustainable community-based substance use disorder (SUD) treatment and recovery infrastructure. “In order to sustain the impact of settlement funds, policymakers need to be able to assess where specific gaps exist on the ground, in addition to the special needs of their population and local community,” said Tym Rourke, THS Senior Director. “Our firm is thrilled to lend its consensus-building and market analytics skills to provide policymakers with actionable tools they need to make informed life-saving decisions.” (Press release here)
