The Santa Clara County Opioid Overdose Prevention Project (SCCOOPP) is a coalition of health care professionals and other volunteers from a variety of backgrounds whose aim is to promote opioid safety throughout our county for all residents. Our coalition is part of a larger network of opioid safety coalitions throughout the state, called the California Opioid Prevention Network.
We provide public and prescriber education for safer use of opioids, aim to improve opioid use disorder treatment access and access to naloxone kits, which can reverse opioid-related breathing problems. We further strive to reduce the amount of opioids in circulation through the promotion of storing opioid medication safely and disposing of opioids no longer needed promptly and correctly.
Join the coalition!
There are no requirements to join, and you can dedicate as much or as little time as you would like.
NOTE: Beginning in 2019, meetings will be held on the fourth Tuesday of every month.
