Multnomah County Health Department works to reduce overdoses and overdose deaths in our county. We have four key areas of focus:

  • Prevention 
  • Harm reduction and intervention 
  • Treatment
  • Ongoing recovery support
Our commitment is to our communities. Each of us deserves dignity, choice, and support. This means meeting people where they are, with compassion, cultural humility, and without judgment. 

This work is outlined in the 2024 Overdose Prevention and Response Plan (7.4 MB)

Emergency Declaration
