The OJJDP FY 2018 Opioid Affected Youth Initiative will fund sites to develop a data-driven coordinated response to identify and address challenges resulting from opioid abuse that are impacting youth and community safety. Category 1: Implementing Data-Driven Strategies and Programs Through Strategic Partnerships will support states, units of local government, and/or tribal governments to (1) develop a multidisciplinary task force with working groups to identify specific areas of concern; (2) collect and interpret data that will assist the task force in developing strategies and programming that will be used to better coordinate response efforts and resources; and (3) implement services that will address public safety concerns, intervention, prevention, and diversion services for children, youth, and families directly impacted by opioid abuse.

Clackamas County will use funding to strengthen community partnerships and establish a Youth Opioid Initiative Taskforce (RxOT) comprised of multiple stakeholders to address youth opioid use; improve care coordination and/or evidence-based interventions for those with opioid use disorder; establish a minimum of 13 formal partnerships to support system improvement efforts to address youth opioid risk and abuse; secure MOU agreements from key partners; organize a minimum of 9 monthly RxOT meetings to aggregate data, assess data, develop strategic plan, implement new systems to collect youth opioid use data, create a data repository to monitor youth opioid trends, identify populations at greatest risk; and partner with local drug/alcohol coalitions to deliver evidence based curriculums/campaigns such as This is Not About Drugs, Generation RX, Talk, Lock & Drop campaign, Brain Development/Opiate Effects, and Safe Drive (Drive to Zero) to enhance education and promote public awareness.
