The Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention has created a number of brochures, reports, guides, and other resources you can use to learn more about stopping prescription drug misuse and abuse.
The Community Reference is a reference and resource guide for communities and local efforts to use in support of new and established initiatives to fight prescription drug misuse and abuse. It was developed by the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention and the Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health.
The Community Reference is meant to encompass the activities of many different organizations that work on various aspects of the opioid crisis. It includes resources and information about public awareness campaigns, the work of the Consortium, and materials such as brochures and guidelines.
