Opioid Prevention

Like communities around the nation, Fulton County has been deeply affected by the opioid crisis. Since 2010, the number of opioid-related emergency visits and opioid-related deaths has increased in Fulton County, across Georgia and across the state.

Fulton County has established an Opioid Coordinator role in the Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities to help coordinate our activities in response to the Opioid crisis.

In 2017, Fulton County became the first Georgia county to file suit against opioid manufacturers and distributors for their role in this crisis.
