Rx Drug Safety

An Opioid Safety Coalition for Placer and Nevada Counties

Placer-Nevada Rx Drug Safety Coalition is a non-profit organization that focuses on opioid prescription safety and increasing the awareness of local resources for the opioid crisis in Placer and Nevada Counties.

Our goal is to tackle the growing problem of opioid overdose and misuse in Placer and Nevada Counties by gathering multiple stakeholders to assess and create solutions focusing on the three federal priority areas: safe prescribing practices, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and increasing access to naloxone.
