Opioid Crisis Video and Toolkit
For several years MOCEP has been actively working with the Missouri State Medical Association, Missouri Hospital Association and other medical groups, to create a plan to address the opioid crisis in Missouri.

An Opioid Toolkit has also been developed by the Missouri Hospital Association which includes strategies to reduce opioid misuse.
