Governor's Advisory Commission on Opioids

Governor Northam's Advisory Commission on Opioids and Addiction was established in 2018 to review and guide state agency work to address the Commonwealth's ongoing opioid and drug overdose epidemics. Co-chaired by the Secretary of Health and Human Resources and the Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, this multidisciplinary group of experts from across Virginia is charged with advising on policy measures, sharing evidence-based practices, and supporting the development of data-driven interventions. The Commission reviews the initiatives of the Administration as carried out by Executive Branch agencies and provides input and feedback to ensure that policy is responsive to the needs of Virginia's diverse communities.
