Reducing the Prevalence and Consequences of Opiod Addiction in Pueblo.

The Pueblo Human Relations Commission (HRC) took the lead in addressing the opioid abuse problem in late 2015 and have been actively involved in the crafting of a solution.  In January 2016, we convened a Heroin Steering Committee to organize the community with the goal of creating a community-centric response.  HRC heard from over 300 citizens and organizations, including families of addicts, addicts seeking recovery, and victims of criminal activity. 

Through the series of community forums, team work sessions, and engagement with community stakeholders, we identified four strategic areas that needed to be addressed to present a comprehensive plan to reduce the prevalence and negative consequences of opioid addiction in our community:
  • Community Prevention and Resources
  • Law Enforcement
  • Treatment
  • Providers

Through our efforts, we have been able to bring together a coalition of city and county organizations, including Triple AIM Corporation, Parkview Behavioral Health, League of Women Voters, Pueblo Police Department, Pueblo County Sherriff’s Department, Pueblo Public Defenders Office, Pueblo City and County Health Departments, Crossroads Turning Points, and Access Point Pueblo.
