Nearly $1.6 billion by 2040

Michigan governments are slated to receive nearly $1.6 billion from opioid settlements by 2040. Fifty percent (50%) of the settlement amount will be distributed directly to county, city, and township governments.

The remaining 50% will be distributed to the state government's specially designated fund, The Michigan Opioid Healing and Recovery Fund.

Monroe County

The Monroe County Substance Abuse Coalition Opioid Strategic Plan was released in September 2020, and a part of this plan included public safety strategies to reduce substance use and misuse in Monroe County.  A collaboration of representatives from local organizations was established to focus on improving data consistency/sharing and creating an Overdose Fatality Review Committee (OFRC).  Initial metrics were identified, and data collection for these metrics is sought on a quarterly basis.  A dashboard of these data points was created for your reference. The data for these metrics will be updated on an annual basis on the dashboard.
