Alcohol, Opioids, and other Drugs

For over 25 years, JSI has worked with states, communities, and workplaces addressing substance use disorders (SUD). Now, in the midst of an opioid crisis, with its disproportionate effect on underserved communities, there is an urgent need for evidence-based programs to decrease substance misuse and opioid-related morbidity and mortality.

JSI helps policymakers improve substance misuse treatment and prevention policies based on the needs of their populations. Our comprehensive and integrated approach across the continuum of prevention, treatment, and support services for SUD usually includes a needs assessment, evaluation, research studies, communication campaigns, and quality improvement.
