A Word From The Governor

The opioid crisis is one that has invaded so many aspects of the lives of South Carolinians and of families across the country. We have recognized that the only way to address this statewide public health emergency is to bring together state agencies, private partners, law enforcement, healthcare providers, first responders, and community members to combat the growing epidemic of opioid abuse, addiction, and deaths.
