The National Association of County and City Health Officials Files Amicus Brief in Appeal of Local Opioid Crisis Case

Jan 23, 2023

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), along with the American Public Health Association (APHA), filed an amicus brief on January 4, 2023 with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in The City of Huntington, West Virginia, and Cabell County Commission v. AmerisourceBergen Drug Corp., Cardinal Health, Inc., and McKesson Corp. In the brief, NACCHO and APHA argue in support of the City of Huntington and Cabell County that the oversupply of prescription opioids caused a severe and ongoing misuse and dependence crisis that must be remedied through evidence-based treatment, prevention, and recovery measures.
