A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH

Make an Impact

Aid Montana will be a comprehensive approach to addressing Montana’s substance abuse problem. While law enforcement will certainly be one method of addressing substance abuse in our state, it isn’t the only approach. Treatment, education, and coordination efforts are critical if we are to get ahead of this problem, and will be central components to our strategy.

Working together with the Montana Healthcare Foundation, we’ll engage stakeholders to explore the challenges and opportunities facing Montana communities related to substance use disorder prevention (SUD) and treatment, and to identify effective, Montana-based solutions.

LOOK TO THE FUTURE

In the months ahead, Attorney General Fox will work with stakeholders to develop a strategic plan to comprehensively address substance abuse, including alcohol and prescription drug use, in Montana. The plan will include policy recommendations to the 2019 Legislature, as well as recommendations to agencies that can be achieved through existing authority and resources.
