The Hawai‘i Opioid Initiative (HOI) is a collaboration of public health, public safety, healthcare professionals, and community partners working together to address misuse and overdose related to opioids and other drugs. Started in 2017, the HOI has seven workgroups that meet regularly to implement the HOI strategic plan and promote system improvement by integrating substance use prevention and treatment within Hawaii’s healthcare system.

Unite To Move Forward
The Hawai‘i Opioid Initiative Action Plan is a comprehensive strategy to aggressively counteract the increased abuse and misuse of opioids. The plan is designed to sustain a system-wide, coordinated and proactive response to not only opioids, but also methamphetamine and other prevalent drugs.
The HOI is led by the Department of Health, together with the Department of the Attorney General, Department of Human Services Med-QUEST Division, Department of Public Safety Narcotics Enforcement Division, County police departments, and a wide range of community groups.
