The Alaska Office of Substance Misuse and Addiction Prevention, established in July of 2017, uses a public health approach to prevent and reduce substance use disorders, prevent harms caused by substance use and support community-based activities across Alaska. Our services protect life, health and safety of Alaskans. We focus largely on strengthening the essential public health infrastructure, services, systems and partnerships across Alaska. Current activities are focused on opioid and marijuana misuse and addiction prevention, data and evaluation, including program and systems changes to mitigate harms.
