THANK YOU!

YOU - all of you - have heeded the Grand Forks Call to Action (CTA) and it is making a difference.

The focus of the CTA is developing an ongoing, community-wide Plan of Action to address addiction and substance use disorder.

The CTA Plan will comprise recommendations created out of conversations, committees and good, old fashioned feedback from our residents and professional stakeholders.

Together, we will develop, enact, track and continue this plan until we significantly change the face of addiction in Grand Forks and truly create a community of recovery.

The timeline on this page let's you know where we've been and where we're going.

Below, you will find more resources on the four committees formed to create CTA Recommendations and several ways to sign up to take action, receive updates or otherwise join the Call to Action.

Ongoing Progress:

Congratulations Grand Forks!  Thanks to the community for informing the plan and Debbie Swanson, the Grand Forks Public Health for leading the way.  Because of the those efforts The North Dakota Department of Human Services has identified Grand Forks as a community with the capacity to address the opioid crisis and has awarded a $130,000 grant to strengthen local efforts to treat opioid use disorder, support recovery, and save lives by preventing overdose deaths.

 

 

 


 

We've formed four Action Committees which grew from the Community Survey and discussions at the Call to Action meeting on May 25, 2017.

These groups, using the input of surveys and various discussions have developed Draft Recommendations. Please review and share your comments below!
