California Opioid Safety Network
COSN provides support including TA, coaching and customized learning opportunities to Opioid Safety coalitions working throughout California on the following strategies: adopting safer prescribing practices, improving access to medical treatment, increasing naloxone distribution, and other innovative harm reduction strategies.
- The National Overdose Prevention Network (NOPN)
NOPN is a community of inspired learners ready to share best lessons and build new knowledge together, providing a platform to support a national network committed to health equity and preventing both new addictions and unnecessary overdose deaths. It supports a community of partners from across the country with virtual and in-person learning opportunities, sponsored tailored programs, and a robust public website housing trainings, tools and resources.
- AmeriCorps VISTA Program
CHLP’s COSN sponsors the largest AmeriCorps VISTA program dedicated to opioid safety in the country, with the capacity to place 40 VISTA members in coalitions across California. VISTA members serve for one year, bolstering the impact of the coalitions to incite transformational change within their communities. As the sponsor organization, CHLP manages recruitment and placement as well as provides a professional development and support network for AmeriCorps VISTA members throughout the state.
