San Bernardino County Youth Opioid Response
The San Bernardino County Youth Opioid Response (SBCYOR) coalition is tasked with addressing the opioid crisis that has affected so many youths and families in San Bernardino County, California. SBCYOR consists of professionals in healthcare, behavioral health, public education, law enforcement, emergency medical services (EMS) agencies, and juvenile detention centers throughout San Bernardino County. The coalition focuses on individuals between ages 12 through 24, working with local communities to prevent and reduce opioid overdose death and opioid use disorders (OUD). SBCYOR envisions a continuum of effective programs and services specifically accessible to youths to turn the tide on the opioid epidemic.
SBCYOR is supported by the California Youth Opioid Response (YOR California) project.
With our coalition partners, SBCYOR intends to coordinate and expand Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) care among public services that are currently available to the youth population in our region.
Community Safety: decrease morbidity and mortality of youth affected by the opioid epidemic
Care Coordination: expand access to care using effective treatment for youth with OUD in the region
Education and Engagement: decreased stigma associated with OUD within the community
