About the Task Force
The Opioid Initiative Task Force was created with the goal of following up on the Opioid Summit Report and to engage the Division and ABA in discussions to counter the crisis. The Opioid Summit was held in Chicago, IL on May 4, 2018, in collaboration with representatives from 30 ABA entities and non-ABA organizations. The Opioid Summit Report’s action points and recommendations were adopted by the ABA House of Delegates in Resolution 108 during ABA Midyear in Las Vegas on January 28, 2019. The Task Force is working to continue the discussion on confronting the epidemic through programmatic and policy efforts.
