Evidence in Action: Evidence-Based Approaches to the Opioid Epidemic

Every day we see strategies that are working and delivering results in a rapidly changing world. This Evidence in Action blog series highlights the voices of social innovation organizations that are advancing effective interventions in communities across the country and evidence-based policy and practice leaders to elevate both the results-driven solutions being advanced to help solve our most pressing social problems and to describe the evidence-based federal programs that are critical to developing and scaling effective human and social services.

Today, Urban Institute, a nonpartisan research organization, shares its post, “A Prescription for Fighting the Opioid Epidemic: Evidence-Based Policies and Practices,” about the need to test and evaluate strategies to identify evidence-based practices in the fight against the opioid epidemic. This post originally appeared on Urban Institute’s PFS Perspectives blog.
