Dear Colleague,

We still have the option to develop Virginia-specific opioid abuse and overdose risk mitigation guidelines. Developing these guidelines would require the collective effort of the state agencies, professional boards, professional associations and interested healthcare professionals. To help us determine the need for Virginia-specific guidelines, we ask that you complete this short online survey, which will remain open for 60 days.
